Bandit country

It being November, and I am attempting to make progress with the never-ending Wimsey/Potterverse crossover mpreg fic. I have now got to the point where the bandits appear, and naturally, this was an excuse for some research. Or ‘research’.

In the course of which I discovered this extract from British Pathé news on a French campaign against bandits in 1931 (how fortunate my story is set in the 20s): Cleaning Up Corsica!

I should note that my bandits, being not only fictional, but fictional bandits who have read about fictional bandits, are a lot better dressed.
