The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), colloquially known as MI6 is the United Kingdom's external intelligence agency, part of the country's intelligence community. Under the direction of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), it works alongside the Security Service (MI5), Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and the Defence Intelligence Staff (DIS).

MI6 is the British intelligence agency responsible for foreign shores. Its scale of operations was not large before the war, and now it is even smaller. A few field agents are left, most operating in Eastern Europe or Iran. In addition to these, two field agents work out of the British Embassy in Australia, two out of the embassy in South Africa, one in Canada, and two in the United States.
Structure: There is no field structure to MI6. Field agents transmit their information to the nearest British forces. From there it is sent on to the MI6 in Portsmouth, where it is filed and used. It is not a reliable system because of the difficulties in getting the information to Portsmouth, but it's all there is.
Leaders: MI6 is led by Sir Alan Sanderson. His deputy is Sir John Collins. Major Mark Brown is the MI6 attache to BAOR.
