    Administrative history

    The Patrician is the yearbook of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI). The Esquimalt Patrician was initially a quarterly magazine published in 1933 by B Company of the Regiment, then located at Work Point Barracks, Esquimalt, BC. In January 1937 it was renamed The Patrician and in August 1938 production was moved to the regimental Home Station in Winnipeg. In August 1939 publication was suspended due to the outbreak of the Second World War. The publication was revived as a semi-annual published by the Regimental Depot in 1953, and in 1960 it became an annual. In 1968 the Patrician became one of the responsibilities of the Regimental Adjutant, and in 1973 Regimental Headquarters (RHQ) was established to centralize his functions. In 1976 the office of Regimental Major was created to command RHQ.
