PPCLI Colours photo collection

  • PPCLI P14
  • Collection
  • 1914-1989

This collection consists of images of the Colours of Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) as well as related units such as 2 Commando of the Canadian Airborne Regiment. Also includes images of the PPCLI camp flag. In early military tradition, a battalion’s Colours were a flag carried near the commanding officer to serve as a rallying point in the melee of battle. Though no longer of strategic importance, its Colours are considered to be its most precious possession and are normally only displayed during military parades. In the British Commonwealth, battalions possess two Colours: the King’s (or Queen’s) Colour and the Regimental Colour. Regiments can be given permission to decorate their Colours with Battle Honours: the names of notable battles or campaigns in which they fought. PPCLI’s original Colour, known as the Ric-A-Dam-Doo, was hand-embroidered by Princess Patricia, and was last Canadian Colour to actually be carried into battle.
