  • Collection
  • [ca. 1958-ca. 2005]

The collection consists of biographical sketches and résumés of senior officers and senior non-commissioned officers of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI), as well as a few notable war heroes and other personalities associated with the Regiment. It became customary in the Canadian Armed Forces to distribute résumés of the careers of senior officers for purposes of reference. Appointments or retirements of senior officers were often publicized in media releases containing biographical information. The PPCLI Regimental Museum collected these résumés and media releases, as well as newsclippings and other types of biographical articles.
