Scope and content
Series consists of records that cover the complete range of wartime and postwar international relations, including relations with most countries, the United Nations Preparatory Conference, the peace settlement, refugee questions, trade, war crimes and espionage. Some of the files in this registry were carried on from the existing registry because of their continuing importance. In July of 1940 London became the de facto headquarters of the Allied war effort in Europe. A number of occupied countries established governments in exile there and it was from there that the military campaign was directed. The Canadian High Commission became, as a result, the European headquarters for Canada. The office was flooded with new responsibilities and all the records associated with these duties. One response to these new functions within the High Commission was a re-organized central registry. The "A Registry" was established in 1940, with all the files in this registry beginning with the designation AR.
