Saw the Sea Wolves for the first time in ten years and thought that they looked like they had a lot of fun.

Being (obviously) considerably younger than the average old croaker in the film, I idly wondered whether there is a current (albeit slightly tongue in cheek) need for a bunch of ex wannabes to go and 'sort out' an issue.

What could we put a team together for?

Your idea has some merit.
There was a move a while back to start a rival to Blackwater.
It was to be called "Arrsewater" and would be comprised of people who were considerably more out of control, true sex pests and your friendly neighbourhood psychos
Regrettably, nothing came of it because I'm sure that we would have been able to offer a serious contribution to world stability

Gentlemen

If you are thinking of forming such a unit, could I please put name down for consideration. I would like to think that my skills have not diminished and that I could still perform with gusto, just at a much slower pace

Let's see.... you'd need a clever bloke who wears gloves and smokes cigars, a good looking bloke who good at lying, a big black bloke who's scared of flying.......

Something with a nautical flavour.......like capturing a ship hijacked by Somali pirates perhaps?
Or for the oldies, a bank heist inspired by the Jack Hawkins film made in 1960, The League of Gentlemen. One of my favourite films and was an original idea for the Great Train Robbery.
Of course the Calcutta Light Horse were a reserve unit and perhaps we should look to the TA for personnel.

What, like this?

Unit transport was cheap, most having bus passes.
It attracted some strange applicants, allegedly.

Blimey. I was thinking of a more proactive role...

Plenty of city types in the HAC.

Not fully employed at the moment and all are either risk takers, gamblers or outright crooks.

Must be an opening for them somewhere.
