"Q Here" the Quartermaster of Fishwick Special Branch has drawn Huttonian's attention to an ad on the front page of the Gerdian which asks : 'Where else could you Travel the World and Witness History in the Making?" No, not a puff for British Airways but for "Operational Officers" in MI6 aka SIS. If you want to know more, sure you do, go here
It reminds me of a much better drafted Army Recruiting Poster current in the 1950s:
'Join the British Army. Go to Exciting and Exotic countries. Meet Exciting and Exotic People.
And Kill them'
Someone told me that this was a spoof. Having been in Operation Musketeer in 1956
I am not so sure
In the meanwhile and assuming you have nothing better to do try the Virtual Tour on the SIS website. I am sure the charming lady taking you around here,
the official Spooksperson, as it were ,will make you consider a career change?
Failing that there is always Second Life
(I am told that this building was originally intended for Fishwick but failed to get
Planning Permission despite Big Jim F' support. It now houses FSB's sister organisation in the Vauxhall area)
