Officially, LIGHTHOUSE is the codename for the Laundry Officer in Charge (OIC) at the British Embassy, Washington, D.C. The mission consists of a single officer, who is only concerned1 with occult security at the Embassy. This is an extremely stressful and difficult assignment for a number of reasons. Alone among the officers of British Intelligence in the American capitol, LIGHTHOUSE has no liaison relationship with his American counterparts. Because the Laundry has a semi-antagonistic relationship with the Black Chamber, America is considered “far foreign” territory, with an side-helping of “unfriendly”. For additional guidelines on operating in D.C, Google “Moscow Rules” and then amplify for unknown values of occult surveillance.

LIGHTHOUSE is sometimes also used to refer to the Embassy, or even Washington, D.C. itself.
