Administrative history

In Canadian military tradition, senior non-commissioned officers (sergeants and warrant officers) normally dine separately from officers and from junior ranks (privates and corporals). The Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) Sergeant's Mess was established in 1914 shortly after the founding of the Regiment. By the 1970s it was known as the Home Station Warrant Officers' and Sergeants Mess. The Home Station of the PPCLI was considered to be Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Calgary from 1968 until 1997 when it was moved to CFB Edmonton. Under the authority of the Queen's (or King's) Regulations and Orders, it governs itself under a Constitution and Bylaws. In addition to dining, the Mess provides social and recreational services to its members and their families.
