Rate this:
In the early days of World War I, Hamilton Gault funded the raising of a new regiment. Princess Patricia of Connaught, daughter of then Governor-General of Canada the Duke of Connaught, hand-made the camp colours and lent her name to the regiment: the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry. Over the course of the war, the Patricias, as they became known, fought valiantly and suffered great loss, the beginning of a long and illustrious regimental tradition. In World War II, the Patricias fought in the battles of Ortona, Liri Valley and the Gothic Line and participated in the liberation of Holland. Later the regiment battled valiantly in the Korean War. More recently, as peacemakers, the Patricias have faced off against the Croatian army in Yugoslavia, coming under enemy fire and earning the United Nations unit citation for their efforts.
