PPCLI general collection

  • PPCLI Collection 1
  • Colección
  • 1894-2018 (predominant 1914-2018)

The collection is classified into 38 series representing broad subjects, periods of regimental history, and units within the regiment. Many of the series are further divided into sub-series. Files are generally described to the item level. Many of the files contain material both "about" and "created by" the subject. The collection consists of correspondence, nominal rolls, ledgers, scrapbooks, war diaries, Part I and Part II Orders, maps, blueprints, annual reports, meeting minutes, newsletters, magazines, newspapers, clippings, programmes, posters, postcards, souvenirs, and personnel documents documenting regimental activities and achievements during war and peace times, and the service of individual members of the Regiment. Also included is biographical information on the Colonels-in-Chief, Colonels of the Regiment and other Regimental personalities. Some series include pamphlets and other ephemera related to military history, regimental traditions, the Regimental Colours, training policies and procedures, uniforms and equipment, allied regiments, the airborne role, the Regimental Band, mascots, and sports. Also featured are records of the Regimental Executive Committee, the 75th anniversary celebrations of the Regiment, the PPCLI Cadets, and the biennial Exercise Ric-A-Dam-Doo conference. Significant personal papers and collections of regimental leaders and personalities include those of Princess Patricia (Lady Patricia Ramsay), Lady Patricia Brabourne (Countess Mountbatten of Burma), Hamilton Gault, Cameron Ware, G.G. Brown, and W.B.S. Sutherland. Individual collections contained within the collection include those of W.E. Bastedo (who corresponded with many Great War veterans in the 1960s), BAJ Franklin, K.F. Bunyan, E.K. Fitzgerald, Hub Gray, Eleanor M. Rieger, John Milburn, Leslie A. White, and Stephen Trache. Significant personal papers within the collection include those of Agar Adamson, Leslie W. Basham, K.C. Burness, George S. Currie, James A. de Lalanne, Walter Draycot, Dorothy Gault, Victor F. Gianelli, Stanley Jones, F.J. Kendall, N.J. McFarlane, Hugh M. McKenzie, Jenny Macgregor Morris, Donald Munro, Hugh W. Niven, D.F. Parrott, John Louis A. Robertson, and Peter Worthington. Generally, documentation of activities more recent than 1994 has been reassigned to other fonds and collections at the PPCLI archives, but some more recent records that document earlier activities continue to be added to the collection.

PPCLI colonels-in-chief photo collection

  • 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.

  • 1941-2015

The honorary title of Colonel of the Regiment (CoR) of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) was initiated by the Regimental Executive Committee (REC) in October 1958, with permission of Army Headquarters. The title was limited to serving or retired officers of PPCLI holding the rank of Colonel or higher. The CoR participated in parades and other ceremonies, and was an ex officio member of the REC. The founder of the Regiment, Brigadier-General A. Hamilton Gault, was the first to hold the title, however, he died in the same month as his appointment, November 1958. He was succeeded by Major-General Cameron Bethel Ware, who held the title from 1959 to 1977. Thereafter, Colonels of the Regiment were appointed for 3-year terms, which could be renewed once. The collection consists of formal portraits of Colonels of the Regiment, and photos of them in ceremonial and other situations. The photos are grouped into series by their names in consecutive order: Cameron Bethel Ware, George Grenville Brown, William Benjamin Scott Sutherland, Reginald Stuart Graham, Herbert Chesley Pitts, C. William Hewson, A.J.G.D. de Chastelain, Robert I. Stewart, J.E.L. Gollner, Raymond R. Crabbe, W. Brian Vernon, Vincent W. Kennedy. Includes Col. Sutherland's collection of historical photos.
