Princess Patricia s Canadian Light Infantry Regiment will visit Small Arms in Lakeview on Sept.
7, 2014 The following text, to which I ve added headings, is from the Summer 2014 newsletter of the Small Arms Society You can access the newsletter, which includes a focus on military history, 1 here: Arms2Arts newsletter- Summer 2014 2 Canada s First-into-Battle WWI Regiment is Coming to Small Arms On September 7, the Princess Patricia s Canadian Light Infantry 3 will be marching into Mississauga. They re arriving here as part of a nation-wide ceremony to honour the regiment s 100th anniversary; and Mississauga was an important part of the regiment s storied history. The regiment was called to service on Aug.
10, 1914 The Princess Pats was formed immediately after World War I began, when a Montreal textiles merchant, Andrew Hamilton Gault approached the government of Canada with an offer of $100,000 (about $2.5 million today) to raise a battalion to be the first Canadian unit to serve in the battlefield. The regiment was named in honour of Princess Patricia, the daughter of the Duke of Connaught, who was then Governor General of Canada. Although based in Western Canada today, the regiment continues to draw soldiers from all parts of the country.
A Memorial Baton will be carried by soldiers of the PPCLI 4 from Edmonton to Ottawa between August 10 (the date of the regiment s call to service) and September 18, when it was formed in Ottawa. Frezenberg, Belgium: The regiment commenced with 547 soldiers; 154 survived The Memorial Baton Relay will end in Lansdowne Park in Ottawa. The Memorial Baton will then be taken to Frezenberg, Belgium for a ceremony on May 8, 2015 to rededicate a memorial there honouring the PPCLI.
The regiment played a critical role in stopping a German offensive here that threatened to overrun allied lines. The regiment commenced the battle with 547 soldiers. Only 154 survived.
Ceremonies in Port Credit and Lakeview will take place on Sept.
7, 2014 The Memorial Baton Relay will pass through the following communities, between August 10 and September 18: Alberta: Edmonton, Camrose, Wainwright, Calgary, Suffield and Medicine Hat Saskatchewan: Regina and Moosomin 5 Manitoba: Brandon, Shilo and Winnipeg Ontario: Thunder Bay, Elk Lake, Espanola, London, Toronto, Highway of Heroes, Trenton, Kingston and Ottawa. The ceremonies in Port Credit and Lakeview will be on September 7. Quebec: Montreal and Mont St-Hilaire 6 The Memorial Baton contains the Roll of Honour of the regiment, symbolizing the national character of the Princess Pats.
The passing of the torch represents the enduring character of the regiment from generation to generation. The Roll of Honour is a list of the 1,600 soldiers of the PPCLI killed in action since World War I. Baton relay stops on Sept.
7, 2014 in Mississauga September 7 will be a special day in Mississauga for the baton relay. The first Canadian commander of the PPCLI was Agar Adamson, whose home still stands at the south end of Enola Avenue. Adamson s wife, Mable Cawthra served as a nurse.
At 11 a.m., a plaque will be unveiled at the Adamson family crypt at Trinity Anglican Church at 26 Stavebank Road North in Port Credit by Adrienne Clarkson. The former Governor General of Canada is the colonel-in-chief of the PPCLI; carrying on the tradition from the first days of Princess Patricia, that a woman will always be the honorary commander of this honoured regiment. Agar Adamson commanded the regiment from June 1916 until May 1918 Adamson commanded the regiment from June 1916 until May 1918, and led the troops in several battles including Canada s historic victory at Vimy Ridge.
7 Agar s ashes, and those of his wife, are interred in the family crypt. Adamson Estate After the plaque dedication, the Memorial Baton Relay will head to the Adamson Estate, 850 Enola Avenue, where a second plaque will be unveiled. The relay will continue to the Small Arms building, arriving at about 11:30 a.m., where the Centennial Display Team will showcase the regiment s history.
This showcase includes a 25-foot light armoured vehicle, a flying kitchen, a 50-foot tractor trailer mobile museum and a Kiddie Commando Camp with obstacle course, bouncy castle and camouflage face painting. There will also be a Bren gun carrier. Brens were made at Small Arms 8 building after WWII.

Hundreds of Corby people turned out to cheer the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Anglian Regiment, known as The Poachers, when they marched through the town on Monday (July 21). Granted the Freedom of the Borough in 2012, the 200 soldiers and military bandsmen were given a warm welcome home after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Crowds waving Union Jacks lined the streets, applauded and cheered as the parade made its way from West Glebe Park, up Elizabeth Street, along Alexandra Road and George Street to James Ashworth VC Square.
There Corby mayor, Cllr Anthony Dady, welcomed the regiment back from Afghanistan and to the borough. Praising its professionalism and dedication, he said: You sought to protect the weak and the innocent and you can be proud of the role you played there. We are immensely proud of your achievements in a difficult situation.
We salute you and give thanks for your safe return and mourn for the loss of your comrades. Brigadier Wild, of the Royal Anglian Regiment, thanked Corby Council and the people of the town for showing their support. He said: The town has been a provider of many reliable soldiers.
Thank you for inviting us and showing your support. It s extremely humbling and it is an honour to be here. After the General Salute, the parade left the square outside the Cube and residents were entertained by the Corps of Drums.
Cllr Dady hosted a reception for the regiment and guests who included, David Laing, the Lord Lieutenant of Northamptonshire, Anne Burnett the county s High Sheriff, borough councillors, representatives of the police force and the Corby branch of the Royal British Legion, Army and Air Force cadets and Kerry Ashworth, mother of Lance Corporal Ashworth who was killed in action in Afghanistan.
