If there was a Civil War??

Aberdeen Shrimper

The Man who sold the world
Aug 9, 2008
One of Glasgow’s comments on another thread prompted me to start this one.

Imagine that Civil War broke out in the UK and you were put in charge of a unit of 10 men/women. These 10 men/women would be the elite of the elite and all hand chosen by yourself from fellow Zone members.

You part is to choose 10 members from the Zone who will make up your unit and list the reason why you picked them. You can name your unit if you so desire.

The only one thing that is not allowed during your mission to advance north and secure Edinburgh is violence of any kind. So choose wisely as you will need as many attributes as you can muster.


Cricko: This wily old fox of a con man is a must for any unit, this guy would be able to blag anything from anyone on the advance forward

Pubey: As one of the more inelegant members of the Zone, his analytical mind would come in very useful.

DtS: For the morale of the unit, with his pulling powers he could keep the unit well stocked with accommodating dirty wenches.

A Century United: For any aquatic recons that have to be carried out.

CarrowRoad_Hero:For when we pass through Norfolk so that the unit can have safe passage and accommodation at every house in the county (his Brothers and sisters)

Miss West Stand: Just in case DtS doesn’t bag enough skirt one night!

Southend Lady: As above

MK: For his level headed approach to everything.

Big Shrimp: To pictorially document the campaign

True Blue: If the unit was running low of food provisions, we could send out TB and he would sniff out any single morsels of food that were available. His skills are so honed that he could successfully track down a single bake bean in a football stadium.

This was a quick effort, I am sure that you lot can do better.
