No. A "deuce" is always a 2. You can "take a deuce" meaning to go to the bathroom and take a $h!+. You might say "I have to go drop a deuce."

With dice, a "deuce" is also "snake eyes," and a rolling two 1's. A 12 on two dice (2 6's) is "box cars."

With vehicles, in the 50's and 60's a "deuce coupe" was a two-seater although that has fallen from slang and rarely, if ever, used now.

Thanks a lot!
Unfortunately I'm unable to send you a rep. Probably a bit later it'd be possible.

The Crown, Season 1

The Crown is as far as I can tell a quite faithful biographical story of the early reign of Elizabeth II.
It covers the domestic political rivalries (period postwar Churchill and Atlee); trivia on the royal family, the romances of those around the young queen, e.g. younger sister Margaret who apparently likes to be humiliated and her own not so happy marriage to Philip,
as well as the events that shaped postwar Britain.

Everything fits: storyline, cinematography, costumes, history.
I am in danger of binge watching

The first episode of "The Last Post" was broadcasted by BBC Canada a few nights ago.

It's about a British Military Police outpost during the last days of the British stay of Yemen.

Quite a cast of fictitious characters. Quite interesting.

I'm going to try to catch future episodes.
