A welcome from the late Corps Historian Alan Edwards
The FICM independent charitable trust was formed on 17 November 2011, specifically to encourage regular support of the Intelligence Corps Museum at Chicksands, Bedfordshire in England. The trust deed includes just two formal objectives.
The Trust and its activities are managed by a Board of Trustees who are all volunteers.
The Trust operates a membership subscription system for supporters. Regular newsletters are published and social events of interest to members are organised during the year.
Membership is open to all, serving and former Corps personnel and members of the public who have an interest in the history of intelligence gathering.
FICM was formed to support the Intelligence Corps Museum collection, currently housed in the Military Intelligence Museum (MIM) and the highly important Corps Archive both located in Chicksands military base but in separate buildings. The MIM Trustees are currently engaged in consideration of developments for the museum including the possible creation of a broader based Museum of Military Intelligence at a location away from Chicksands. The MIM and the FICM Trustees are working in close liaison to ensure continuity for the Corps collection and Archive and may in due course consider a name change for FICM if that is considered appropriate.
