Initially, quarterly. From 1953 to 1958, semi-annual. From 1959 onward, annual. Description based on vol. 6, no. 1 (June 1953). Journal of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, a largely Prairie-based military regiment. Contains advertisements from local businesses.
From [1933?] to [1939?], issued under the title The Esquimalt patrician. Ceases publication from [1939?] to 1952. The "Regimental notes" section on page 2 of volume 6, number 1 (June 1953) provides a summary of The patrician's early history. "The Patrician dates from the year 1933 and was formerly published by the regiment as a quarterly journal. The editors were located at Work Point Barracks in Victoria, British Columbia and the journal was printed by the Veterans' Press in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The copy for volume V, number 3 was delivered to the printer in August 1939 but, due to the war situation, this issue was never published. No copies of the pre-war Patrician are included among the regimental records. In 1946, the regiment published a monthly newsletter at Calgary, Alberta. The fifteen copies of this post war publication are now carefully preserved with the regimental records. They form an invaluable account of the activities of the regiment during the period, 1946-1948. It is a pity that the thread was broken and it will be difficult to fill the gap in detail. The patrician is being re-published as a semi-annual journal and an attempt will be made: 1. to set out a faithful record of the activities of the regiment and, 2. to keep in touch the scattered members of our family."
