Military and Civilian Spooks

#1
I apologise in advance if this question is A)Bone. B)Violates OpSec.C)Both.
Take pity on an ex-Infantry thicko.

Question: does the Int. Corp ever work alongside it's civilian counterparts, MI5 and MI6? I realise that no-one is going to give details, for obvious reasons. I just wondered if such co-operation exists or if Military and Civilian Int organisations work only within there own areas of expertise.

I'm in agreement with d_p here...

I've just spent 2 years undercover as Jessica Simpsons knicker gusset.

It's a tough job but someone has to do it....

Quite right; I don't NEED to know. I was simply asking a civil question about a subject that intrests me. I am not asking anyone to endanger OpSec, nor was I insulting to either the Corp or 5&6.
Your reply adds nothing of value to this thread. You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.

Guess the only thing that would be worth your time is looking at the website of the Security Service, SIS and following any links to documentation on the National Intelligence Machinery which has been published on on the net. Mmmm that's about it really.

Yes you are quite right and for that I apologise, if you are asking me if this is an absolute fact, it would be a breach of OSA, either way!

I refer you to an episode of Spooks where they deploy with a unit of EOD.

What sort of response do you expect to get on an Internet Chat Forum with almost 20,000 members and probably an awful lot more lurkers?

You're right-you don't need to know. So mind your own effing business when it comes to Int stuff, ok?

Actually, I am in a position to show some highly classified pics of SIS operatives in the field.

This is just a taster, this chap is the agricultural attache to an embassy in a large far eastern nation.. 8)

It is documented that the agencies do work together... as you quite rightly expect. But I only know of one case where a person has left the forces to transfer to the dark side...good looking b'stard with a penchant for Aston's if my memory serves...

Now pull up a bollard I shall spin you a dit.

A time ago I and some of our ship's team (incl CO) had to go to London for a brief from some spooks. Fine and dandy. However being good Naval types we decided to travel up the day before and make full use of the over 10's and our sea pay. So we are in this meeting in Thames House and I feel less than happy. In fact I needed to throw up. Now in any other normal place I could stand up, make my excuse and slide off to the heads and throw up. not here. Not the right pass you see.......... more to follow in the happless adventures of a junior naval officer

So I had to stop the briefing, ask for some one to escort me (meaning a flunky has to be called) to the heads. Throw up and return. CO unable to concel his joy in seeing me in distress. I get some more days duties and all in all I don't think I will be getting the call up for under cover ops soon.

The answer to the question is: yes, of course we do.
Or maybe we don't... 8O

After a discussion with visiting brief team from Int Corps, they informed me that they do work together, but the int corps are better paid and don't spend most of their time having to live in London.

And the moral of this story is 'People in glass houses shouldn't throw up' :twisted:
