Involuntarily-retired Colonel Hyde recruits seven other dissatisfied ex-servicemen for a special project. Each of the men has a skeleton in the cupboard, is short of money, and is a service-trained expert in his field. The job is a bank robbery, and military discipline and planning are imposed by Hyde and second-in-command Race on the team, although civilian irritations do start getting in the way. Written by

During the weapons robbery at the army camp, Porthill, played by Bryan Forbes
, is wearing a uniform with an RASC (Royal Army Service Corps) shoulder flash. But he is missing the striped lanyard which he should have been wearing over his left shoulder. Such a lanyard, usually attached to a clasp knife stored in the left breast pocket of the battledress jacket, was standard equipment for members of the RASC in 1960. See more
