Forty Elephants

Committee Introduction

Known to be ruthless, clever and deceitful, the Forty Elephants was an all female gang that ran the largest shoplifting operation ever seen in Britain. Beginning in the late 1800s, the group successively stole thousands of pounds of valuable goods from high end shops across London. Members of the Forty Elephants will be responsible for developing shoplifting operations that will profit the group, protect the identities of gang members and maintain their individual public image. As a group, the Forty Elephants will also consider establishing relations with other British gangs, such as Elephant and Castle. Through their efforts, it is important that members uphold the values of the Forty Elephants while also aiming to expand the influence of this feared gang.
