Search for crest (4)


I believe the answer is:


Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'search' is the first definition.

(combing is a kind of searching)

'crest' is the second definition.

(comb is a kind of crest)

'for' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for comb that I've seen before include "Carefully search", "groom?", "Toothed device - crest", "Device for tidying one's appearance", "For use on hair", "Red crest on a cock's head", "Toothed instrument", "Cock's crest", "Honey structure" and "Systematically search".)
