Caption: Drummer, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, 1924-1927

The ‘PPCLI’ adopted its scarlet full dress uniform with ‘French grey’ (light blue) facings in 1924. At that time, the white helmet’s puggaree was also light blue but this was against regulations and the regiment was ordered to change them to white in 1927. The regiment did not give up and the light blue puggarees were finally allowed after the Second World War. (Canadian War Museum)
