Administrative history

Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) was raised in Ottawa in August 1914 as the result of an offer by Captain A. Hamilton Gault to provide $100,000.00 to finance and equip a regiment for overseas service. It was named after Princess Patricia, granddaughter of Queen Victoria and daughter of the Duke of Connaught, then Governor-General of Canada. PPCLI has been a Canadian permanent force regiment since its founding. Since 1920 it has been based in various locations in western Canada. It participated in two World Wars, the Korean War, the War in Afghanistan, civic crises, Cold War era defence and numerous peacekeeping missions all over the world. During the Korean War the Regiment was increased to 3 Battalions and then cut back to 2 Battalions in 1954. In 1970 it was again increased to 3 Battalions. In the 1990s the three Battalions were based in Edmonton, Alberta and CFB Shilo, Manitoba.
