  • Colección
  • 2002 - 2005

The Tarnak Farm incident, more familiarly known in Canada as "the friendly fire incident", occurred on April 17, 2002 near Kandahar, Afghanistan during Operation Apollo. The 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Battle Group (3PPCLIBG) was conducting night-time anti-tank and machine gun firing exercises, which were mistaken for enemy fire by U.S. Air National Guard fighter jet pilots. The pilots attacked, killing Canadian soldiers Marc Leger, Ainsworth Dyer, Richard Green, and Nathan Smith, and injuring at least eight others. They were the first Canadian casualties of the Afghanistan War, and the incident generated a massive public response. The collection consists of news clippings; printouts of online news stories; TV news clips; scrapbooks of news clippings; messages of condolence received by PPCLI in the form of email messages, condolence books, letters, and sympathy cards; eulogies of the deceased soldiers; and the contents of an album of photographs and memorabilia from Marley Leger's visit to Bosnia.

  • PPCLI P11
  • Colección
  • 1910-2017

This collection consists of images of the three individuals who have held the title of Colonel-in-Chief of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI). In the British Commonwealth military tradition, a regiment is theoretically headed by a colonel-in-chief, who is a member of the Royal Family or is otherwise a person of national prominence. Princess Patricia of Connaught, the namesake of PPCLI, was actually appointed Colonel-in-Chief on 22 February 1918. Upon her marriage to Captain Alexander Ramsay in February 1919 she relinquished the title of Princess and was subsequently addressed as Lady Patricia Ramsay. Upon her death in 1974, she was succeeded by her cousin Lady Patricia Brabourne. In 1979 she inherited her father’s estate and became Countess Mountbatten of Burma, but continued to be addressed informally as Lady Patricia. She retired as Colonel-in-Chief in 2007, and was succeeded by the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson.
