Security Intelligence Far East (SIFE) was a British intelligence organization created in 1946 as the Far Eastern regional headquarters of the Security Service, MI5. It was based in British-controlled Singapore and established by Colonel Cyril Egerton Dixon, a career MI5 officer with a great deal of war time counter intelligence experience in Britain and India. SIFE was also a MI5 controlled organisation, which partially merged its counterintelligence section with the regional headquarters of MI6 in 1950. SIFE controlled a number of MI5 Defence Security Officers in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Malaya and across the Far East.. There are records of eight SIFE heads after Colonel Dixon:Malcolm Johnson 1946–1947 Hugh Winterborn 1947–1948 Alex Kellar 1948–1949 Jack Morton 1949–1952 Courtenay Young 1952–1955 Richard Thistlethwaite 1955–1959 Michael Friend Serpell 1960–1962 Christopher Albert Herbert 1962-1963.
