@ Condotterie : Jock Harris ring a bell ?
The only Harris I recall was not Scottish (or if he was, he didn't sound it and I never heard him referred to as "Jock").

Very interesting. There seems to be a number of PMCs extant, but I don’t recall seeing any information on any but Wagner anywhere.

Wagner seems to be an umbrella and clearing house, but there are a few other loose groups out there.
It's getting more like the medieval Free Companies all the time.
 
With the exception that they are all ultimately controlled by the Kremlin.

The ownership of the asset, (and it's soldiers) seems to swing between the head of army catering and the ministry of defence.
