Disreputable (but attractive) British fliers and swimmers (7)


I believe the answer is:


'disreputable but attractive' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'british fliers and swimmers' is the wordplay.
'british fliers' becomes 'RAF' (Royal Air Force).
'and' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'swimmers' becomes 'fish'.

(Other definitions for raffish that I've seen before include "unconventional" , "Dissolute" , "Rakish" , "like British airmen?" , "Tawdry" .)
