Some of the Service’s history has been well known for
many years, but it is only recently that a policy has been adopted
of trying to put as much additional information as possible
into the public domain. Some of the material released is referred
to in the brief history of the Service that follows.
In October 1909, following a recommendation by the Committee
of Imperial Defence which had been considering the danger to
British naval ports from German espionage, Captain Vernon Kell
of the South Staffordshire Regiment and Captain Mansfield Cumming
of the Royal Navy jointly established the Secret Service Bureau.
To meet an additional requirement from the Admiralty for information
about Germany’s new navy, Kell and Cumming decided to
divide their work. Thereafter, ‘K’ was responsible
for counter-espionage within the British Isles (MI5) while ‘C’
was responsible for gathering intelligence overseas (MI6).
