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

SIS/NI[edit]

David, why the SIS and not the others? Gob Lofa (talk) 20:08, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

Quite simply because non UK readers may not know the difference between MI5 and MI6. Regards, David J Johnson (talk) 20:13, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
They're already distinguished; why not give a precis of the GCHQ and DI as well? Gob Lofa (talk) 20:20, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Quite happy for you to add. Regards,David J Johnson (talk) 20:23, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Seeing as it's the lede, I'd rather take away. Gob Lofa (talk) 20:59, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I concur that it is helpful to provide the distinction between MI5 and MI6, which for many people who know of them, is still sometimes confusing. Mabuska (talk) 21:19, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
You mean the SIS. I agree, just not in the lede. Gob Lofa (talk) 21:28, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
I can see your point and on that point the corresponding SIS article lede doesn't state what MI5 does. Mabuska (talk) 23:52, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
Snowded, anything to add? Gob Lofa (talk) 23:42, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
I think you have to be clear what intelligence service or use a different collective noun ----Snowded TALK 04:34, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
Collective noun? Gob Lofa (talk) 11:25, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
