 Skelton’s Boys: Recruitment for the Foreign Service of Canada, 1925-1941
Most of Canada's ambassadors today survived this ordeal and for some years to come their successors will likely have shared this peculiar rite of passage into the nether world of diplomacy.
The nomination of diplomats to represent Canada in foreign capitals, as well as the redefinition of the high commissioner's role to approximate a diplomatic representative and to eliminate the governor general's representation of the British government, was sanctioned by the discussions and conclusions of the Imperial Conference of 1926.
When Skelton died in late January 1941, he left the foreign service and DEA well placed to meet the challenges ahead and it was appropriately one of his recruits, Norman Robertson, who succeeded him as under-secretary of state for external affairs.

Compared to most British tanks when they first arrived in 1941, the M3s were extremely reliable and fast and sported guns and armor that were the equal of their British contemporaries.

In some countries, however, the mere personal incapacity of a son under age to borrow suffices to vitiate the guarantee of a loan made to him (Spain, 1824; Portugal, 822, S.2, 1535, 1536).
By many existing codes civil, however, a guarantee which imposes on the surety a greater liability than that of the principal is not thereby invalidated, but the liability is merely reducible to that of the principal (Fr.
