Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Regiment will visit Small …

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.

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.

Coldstream Guards set off on long march to London

THREE hundred and fifty years ago General Monck and 6000 troops left a cold and frosty Coldstream to march to London where they helped restore the monarch to the throne. Today, 90 Coldstream Guards set out on exactly the same journey in similar conditions. Led by Major James Coleby, the 7th Company Coldstream Guards were given a rousing send off from Coldstream by local residents and the Old Coldstream Corp of Drums who escorted them to Coldstream Bridge, as they headed for Berwick on the first leg of their 26-day journey.

The Corps of Drums waited for the soldiers at the entrance to Henderson Park, where Brigadier Jonathan Bourne-May took the salute and told the men: “You have an ardous and challenging task ahead of you. “Monck’s actions helped restore the monarchy to the throne. It was an act which was the cornerstone of the modern British army, and an act of great significance. “For the Coldstreamers 350 years ago the weather was very similar, the chaplain at the time recorded that the frost was great and the snow greater and they saw no bare earth from here to London. “You can console yourself that you aren’t having to ford the Tweed. There was a bridge at the time but it wasn’t big enough for all 6000 of them get over.” He went on to add that he had spoken to his counterpart with the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards, who are out in Afghanistan, who wished the soldiers good luck with their march south.

Also had the ceremony was the vicar of Berwick, Canon Alan Hughes who told the guardsmen that he had been sent by the Mayor and Freemen of Berwick to invite them to attend a service of welcome at Berwick Parish Church on the Wednesday evening “that we might honour your epic endeavour and pray for a safe and successful outcome, as you raise funds for The Army Benevolent Fund”.

The Coldstream Guards are due to arrive at Tower Hill on January 31, all going well doing the journey eight days quicker than General Monck’s men.
