PPCLI colonels-in-chief photo collection

  • PPCLI P11
  • Collection
  • 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.
