The 100th anniversary of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry is being marked by a memorial baton relay that will be in Brandon on Monday.
There are two public events scheduled for the celebration. People are invited to a historical display at the Brandon Veterans’ Memorial, at 11th Street and Victoria Avenue from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., with a ceremony at 11 a.m. The baton will be run to the memorial from City Hall.
People are also invited to Canadian Tire on 18th Street from 5 to 8 p.m., where there will be historical and equipment displays as well as family-oriented activities.
The relay is heading from Alberta to Ontario, which is expected to take until September. The baton itself carries a Roll of Honour of the 1,866 members of the Patricias who have been killed in service to Canada over the past century.
