Original MI5 logo. Believed to be pre-1955 or as part of her 1950's to 1970's official insignia [citation needed] It features the 'Eye of Providence', also known as the 'all-seeing eye'.

Should the MI5/SS logo be mentioned in this article? I believe it is pre-1955 but have also read that it was used from the 1950's to 1970's. Any more information on this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.96.24.33 (talkcontribs) 21:42, 21 January 2009

140 Gower St[edit]

Gower Street, London links here, but there's no mention in this article of the headquarters building. Spicemix (talk) 16:13, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

MI5[edit]

Is the Security Service the same agency as Military Intelegence Section 5 but under the Home Office rather then the War Office? If not, then could a new article be made under Military Intelegence Section 5? Regards, Rob (talk) 23:12, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

MIV should redirect here[edit]

MIV (the V is Roman numeral for 5) should redirect here, it was widely used early on in MI5's existence and personally I keep accidently writing it that way, I think it makes sense to link here. Threadnecromancer (talk) 18:24, 7 December 2013 (UTC)Threadnecromancer.

You may refer to the organisation as "MIV", but no media, or the Security Service itself, refers to it by that title. I'm afraid that a link is unnecessary. Regards, David J Johnson (talk) 19:17, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

British Nobility?[edit]

The section on the Inter-War Period includes this:

'The NKVD, however, had evolved more sophisticated methods; it began to recruit agents from within the British nobility, most notably from Cambridge University, who were seen as a long-term investment. They succeeded in gaining positions within the Government (and, in Kim Philby's case, within British intelligence itself) ...'

Not one of the people then named was a member of the aristocracy. Confusing upper middle class with nobility is sloppy and amateurish. Norvo (talk) 01:38, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

So noted. Was it corrected? -- AstroU (talk) 11:42, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
