Administrative history

During World War I Patricia veterans in Ottawa began to gather informally. The Patricia Club of Ottawa was formed 27 December 1917. On 7 February 1918 its constitution was adopted, and other Patricia Clubs were formed in some of the larger Canadian cities. These clubs provided personal assistance to veterans and their families as well as other public services. Following the Second World War, on 18 May 1946, Hamilton Gault organized the first meeting of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Association which now included soldiers still serving with the Regiment. After the Korean War, on 13 September 1953, the PPCLI Association was incorporated. Branches of the Association exit across Canada and in Great Britain, each with their own executive overseen by the National Executive. The Okanagan/Thompson Branch, centred in Vernon, BC, was founded and organized in 1984 by LCol Vince Lilley. It serves members located in the Okanagan Valley and the Thompson River watershed in British Columbia.
