A typical embroided British made Canadian shoulder title to the P.P.C.L.I. (Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry)

This is a good example of a typical embroided British made Canadian shoulder title to the P.P.C.L.I. (Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry). On July 10, 1943, the PPCLI, forming part of the 1st Canadian Infantry Division and the British Eighth Army, landed in Sicily during Operation Husky. In May 1944 the PPCLI took part in the offensive against the Hitler Line, west of Monte Cassino, during the allied offensive against Rome. On March 13, 1945, the I Canadian Corps was transferred to Northwest Europe where it joined the First Canadian Army and took part in the liberation of the Netherlands. Shortly after, the regiment captured the city of Apeldoorn, and, on May 7, 1945, it was the first allied force to enter Amsterdam. THis example is in a good condition with a small moth nip under the first P.
