5 Military Intelligence (MI) Battalion (Volunteers) is the Army’s tactical TA intelligence unit, under Operational Command of 1 Military Intelligence Brigade, and tasked with supporting 1 and 4 MI Battalions, 15 (UK) Psychological Operations Group and the Weapons Intelligence Company.

Whilst all MI Companies are trained in the conduct of Operational Intelligence (OPINTEL), each individual sub unit has a Special to Role task and is affiliated to a regular Army or Defence unit.
Tasks range from Intelligence Exploitation of captured material and information, Weapons Intelligence to Target Audience Analysis.

The unit has 5 companies: 4 x MI Coys (Edinburgh, York, Birmingham, Bristol) with associated detachment locations (Lisburn, Gateshead, Chorley, Nottingham, Newport and Exeter) across the UK and an HQ Coy co-located with Bn HQ at Coulby Newham, Teeside.

We currently have vacancies for both Officers and Soldiers in all locations.

Afraid this callsign is far too old (and wouldn't want to have to lose my beard, I've had it 10 years now), but the best of luck in attracting the right sort.

Sticking my neck out one vertebra, reading that crystal ball, I would assess that Op MI (V) as a trade is likely to be relatively secure post-SDSR. So as safe a bet on Reserve service as any in these uncertain times.

Now where's my nearest Company ?

I'm considering moving back to the UK (London, to be precise) in the next few months if I can find the right job.

At 43 years old and out of the Army since 1992, can I also still rejoin the TA? I've been an intelligence analyst (criminal, terrorism and political) pretty much all the time I've been out, other than during my degree course.

Wrote to London TA a couple of times for info but the doofi have never replied.

AFAIK 43 is the limit without previous mil experience, the limit with depends on what, when etc

3 MI is in London, contact details in the link below. Giving them a ring is best.

Fellow Hants person,

I shall bear you in mind. Many thanks!

I worked with 5MI on their annual camp this year, a top bunch of blokes who seemed well trained. They seem to have a lot of people from other areas of the army eg infantry. If you are thinking of giving them a go I doubt you will be disappointed.

Are there any vacancies still available with the battalion at present, specifically at Coulby Newham or Gateshead? I'm intending to do Summer leader and TACC in September, and MI is my main choice of regiment to commission into. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

It's not a Regiment, it's a Corps. You will have to successfully pass the Technical Selection weekend to be considered, do not make the mistake that some do and assume that getting a commission means you're automatically capable of passing.

As to vacancies I'm in 3 MI, but should you ever move south then you'd have no problem getting a slot as far as I can see.

well seeing as someone else has resurected the thread
did i imagine reading somewhere that bristol had a detachment in cardiff, or am i woofing up the wrong tree?
also would not having DV clearance be a showstopper (only current CTC and waiting on SC to come through)?
cheers
neb (with serious(ish) hat on for once)

54 Coy do indeed have a det in Newport. 0117 986 2122 - as 5MI go they're fairly normal as they don't bother whippets/pigeons/ferrets, play in brass bands or sport tweed based headgear - they do have a tendency to talk funny though.
The requirements for attending trade training are SC - you will apply for DV if you pass.

Probably. Ring them.
