German money was hidden inside a Monopoly board, and decks of playing cards were sent containing military-grade maps of Germany. MI1 Codebreaking, MI2 Russia and Scandinavia, MI3 Eastern Europe, Germany?MI4 Aerial Reconnaisance MI5 domestic intelligence MI6 foreign intelligence MI7 Propaganda MI8 Military Communication Interception, MI9 Undercover operations, /POW escape MI10 Weapons analysis MI11 Field security police MI12 ???I believe the difference is like the FBI and CIA in the USA - one is for domestic intelligence and one is for international intelligence. I also think that some of the other numbers may have been active in intelligence and of the like during the world wars.
Most were folded into MI5, MI6 or GCHQ after the war.
I've found the following after a few web searches: MI1 (Codebreaking), MI2 (Russia and Scandinavia), MI3 (Eastern Europe), MI4 (Aerial Reconnaisance), MI8 (Military Communication Interception), MI9 (Undercover operations), MI10 (Weapons analysis) MI14 and MI15 (German specialists), MI19 (Po W debriefing), MI17 (Military Intelligence "Head Office").
"MI5/MI6" were the original designations when both organisations came under the War Office, now the MOD - "MI" stands for military intelligence.
Their official names (acquired in the 30s) are the Security Service (MI5) and SIS, the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).
GCHQ regularly recruit analysts, and have large teams who can understand and verify whether information is up to date, or translate documents and coded messages. Finally, all federal agencies have Offices of Inspectors General (OIG) who have special agents with law enforcement responsibility and authority to investigate fraud, waste, and abuse within and against each agency.
GCHQ are experts on things like terrorist groups, and can almost immediately decide whether a groups' claim to an attack is genuine. Law enforcement in the United States is very fragmented. has a sheriff's department to investigate crimes in the counties that are outside the jurisdiction of local police departments.
The author says that the whole series has now been replaced anyway.
MI1-director of military intelligence; also cryptography MI2-responsible for Russia and Scandinavia MI3-responsible for Germany and eastern Europe MI4-Aerial reconnaissance during world war two MI5-domestic intelligence and security MI6-foreign intelligence and security MI8-interception & interpretation of communications MI9-clandestine operations (escape and evasion) MI10-weapons and technical analysis MI11-field security police MI14-German specialists MI17-secretariat body for MI departments MI19-POW debriefing unit Contrary to the above answers likening MI5 to the FBI, that's rubbish too. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the US Intelligence services and is simply the "Federal Bureau of Investigation".
most british intelligence agencies still remain classified to the general public x the only reason this information has been released is that these agencies have all now terminated activity and new agencies have replaced them. S DG of MI section 25 By-the-way: NCIS stands for National Criminal Investigative Service. Having lived and studied in Amherst, I'm wondering how you can possess such a deep and correct knowledge of matters military while in 'the valley', an area not exactly conducive, but rather hostile, to that region of scholarship. In the United States, NCIS is the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Now included in the Department of Homeland Security (which was created in 2003) are these federal investigative agencies: CBP (U. myths sections, "SIS (MI6) collects secret intelligence overseas on behalf of the British Government.
NCIS is a team of federal law enforcement professionals dedicated to protecting the people, family, and assets of the US Navy and the Marine Corps worldwide. We do not have an agency called the National Criminal Investigative Service, because we have many federal agencies that investigate crimes nationally. MI5, the Security Service, is the UK's security intelligence agency responsible for protecting the UK, its interests and citizens against major threats to national security." However, these 2 distinct roles entail actual operational overlap and thus "the scope of national security extends beyond the British Isles and may involve the protection of British interests worldwide, e.g.
The NSA is the nearest equivalent to MI5 but GCHQ's role may well overlap in terms of jurisdiction.
