Dates of existence



Leslie Henderson Gault, 1927-2014, was a first cousin once removed of Andrew Hamilton Gault, the founder of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI), although he referred to Hamilton Gault as his uncle. He lived and worked in Montreal and in Calgary as a real estate developer. In 1986 he approached PPCLI with the idea of erecting a statue of Hamilton Gault in Ottawa, a project that was realized in 1992. He contributed to historical research on Hamilton Gault and on the Gault family. He was married twice, to the former Judith McDougall, and to the former Carol Mary Lascelles Carr, and had three sons, Nicholas, Alexander, and Sebastian.
