Diplomats in Blue

William Reynolds Braisted

University Press of Florida

This chapter examines the impact of the 1923 Canton customs crisis on the Asiatic Fleet in the Far East. It suggests that the crisis provided the treaty powers with an opportunity for a classic demonstration of naval power in support of the so-called unequal treaty system. During this time, the responsibilities of the Asiatic Fleet's South China Patrol were extended along the South China coasts of Fukien and Kwangtung provinces and the three tributaries of the Pearl River.

Keywords:   customs crisis, Canton, Asiatic Fleet, China, treaty powers, South China Patrol, Fukien, Kwangtung, Pearl River
