This chapter focuses on the information received from STANLEY dated 8 March 1946 regarding SIS's internal structure, according to which, Major General Sinclair was appointed Deputy Director (VCSS); he was formerly Director of Military Intelligence at the War Office. He deputized and assisted in all aspects of SIS's work—namely, the procurement of intelligence, its evaluation and distribution, administration, finance, communications, and so on. In theory, CSS determined policy, and VCSS inspected its implementation. The information revealed that Sinclair was proving very active, and also played a significant role in directing SIS's work. VCSS had five directorates reporting to him, headed respectively by the Director of Intelligence, the Director of Information, the Director of Finance and Administration, and the Director of Training and Development. These directorates covered almost all of SIS's activities.

Keywords:   SIS internal structure, Major General Sinclair, CSS, intelligence, SIS activities
