John Adam St Gang births GCHQ and MI6 (SIS)

To clarify, for those not familiar with what we describe as the ‘John Adam Street Gang’, these are the charities, corporations and institutions located behind Cleopatra’s Needle on the Thames Embankment (Cleopatra's Needle being their landmark).

The area focused on is bounded, roughly, by the Strand, the Thames Embankment, Northumberland Avenue and Lancaster Place.

FRM’s map (Financial Risk Management) indicates this area.



Shell Mex House and Adelphi House, behind Cleopatra’s Needle:




Watergate House, 13-15 York Buildings, lies within this area.

A historical review of the Signals Intelligence Services main establishments would run to many pages, so it will be sufficient to list it major secret interceptions bases only, these would include it headquarters at; 15 Watergate House, York Buildings Adelphi, London WC2. 1919 Nov -1922 April

GCHQ was originally established after World War I as the Government Code and Cypher School (GCCS or GC&CS), by which name it was known until 1946.
GCHQ is the responsibility of the UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, but it is not a part of the Foreign Office, and its Director ranks as a Permanent Secretary.
Government Code and Cypher School (GCCS)
During the First World War, Britain's Army and Navy had separate signals intelligence agencies, MI1b and NID25 (initially known as Room 40) respectively.[3] In 1919, the Cabinet's Secret Service Committee, chaired by Lord Curzon, recommended that a peace-time codebreaking agency should be created, a task given to the then-Director of Naval Intelligence, Hugh Sinclair.[4] Sinclair merged staff from NID25 and MI1b into the new organisation, which initially consisted of around 25–30 officers and a similar number of clerical staff.[5] It was titled the "Government Code and Cypher School", a cover-name chosen by Victor Forbes of the Foreign Office.[6] Alastair Denniston, who had been a member of NID25, was appointed as its operational head.[4] It was initially under the control of the Admiralty, and located in Watergate House, Adelphi, London.[4] Its public function was "to advise as to the security of codes and cyphers used by all Government departments and to assist in their provision," but also had a secret directive to "study the methods of cypher communications used by foreign powers."[7] GCCS officially formed on 1 November 1919,[8] and produced its first decrypt on 19 October.[4]
Before the Second World War, GCCS was a relatively small department. By 1922, the main focus of GCCS was on diplomatic traffic, with "no service traffic ever worth circulating"[9] and so, at the initiative of Lord Curzon, it was transferred from the Admiralty to the Foreign Office.

The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) is responsible for supplying the British Government with foreign intelligence. Alongside the internal Security Service (MI5), the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and the Defence Intelligence Staff (DIS), it operates under the formal direction of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC).
It is frequently referred to in the mass media and popular parlance by the name MI6, a name used as a flag of convenience during the Second World War when it was known by many names.[1] The existence of MI6 was not officially acknowledged in public until 1994

The SIS today is "the secret front line" of Britain's national security.[3]
The service is derived from the Secret Service Bureau, which was founded in 1909.[1] The Bureau was a joint initiative of the Admiralty and the War Office to control secret intelligence operations in the UK and overseas, particularly concentrating on the activities of the Imperial German Government. The bureau was split into naval and army sections which, over time, specialised in foreign espionage and internal counterespionage activities respectively. This specialisation was because the Admiralty wanted to know the maritime strength of the Imperial German Navy. This specialisation was formalised before 1914. When the First World War started, the two sections underwent administrative changes so that the foreign section became the Directorate of Military Intelligence Section 6 (MI6), the name by which it is frequently known in popular culture today.

GC & CS Government Code & Cipher School was formed on October 24th 1919 and was fully operational by November 1st. It merged the Naval Intelligence Department-25 (Room-40) and the War Offices MI-1B code-breaking services under the civil administration of the Admiralty at Watergate House. The British Army formed the Royal Corps of Signals on August 5th 1920 to maintain the so-called 'Army Chain' via the Rhine Army Signals, Egypt Signals, No-2 Wireless Centre at Sarafand and through to Jubbulpore centre in India. At the same time the Admiralty maintained the most important elements of its wartime network, particularly those stations in the vital strategic centres of Singapore and Hong Kong. In April 1922 it what was to be the most significant event in British SIGINT history, the Foreign Office took over responsibility for GC & CS and placed it under the operational control of SIS (MI6).......

The major re-organization of intelligence and the War Office in 1916 saw the creation of the Directorate of Military Intelligence. MO-5 would become MI-5 and while the Secret Intelligence Service as it was now known gained a new Military cover-name of MI-1C and now became part of the War Office. It also became accountable to and directed by the Foreign Office, which largely funded its budget.
