Sir Richard Moore CMG
Sir Richard Peter Moore, is a British civil servant, currently as the Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service and formerly as the Director-General, Political, at the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office. He was previously the British Ambassador to Turkey.
The Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6 or Her Majesty’s Secret Service, is the foreign intelligence service of the United Kingdom, tasked mainly with the covert overseas collection and analysis of human intelligence in support of the UK’s national security.
MI6 is an organisation where integrity, courage and respect are central to what we do. We encourage and admire difference. Many MI6 staff are based overseas while others work from our headquarters in Vauxhall, London. Although our work is secret, everything we do is legal and is underpinned by the values that define the UK.
Discover the incredible achievements of Britain’s World War Two Codebreakers, in the place where it happened. Who chose Bletchley Park as the wartime home of the Codebreakers? That decision was made by the man in charge of the Secret Intelligence Service, known as ‘C’ = Admiral Sir Hugh Sinclair. A very public man with a very secretive profession, Sinclair was widely-known and well-respected. He passed away just a couple of months after World War Two began in 1939, but his influence was far-reaching. Bletchley Park Trust is proud to display, for the first time, a collection of medals awarded to Sinclair – a recent generous donation from his family members.
