With a motto of “Never Yield” and a history older than Confederation, the Princess of Wales’ Own Regiment commemorates its 150th anniversary this year in a special exhibition at the Canadian War Museum.
Using historical photographs, The Princess of Wales’ Own Regiment: 150 Years of Service tells the stories of the regiment’s soldiers and the battles they’ve fought — from the 1885 Northwest Resistance, through the two World Wars, to the recent conflict in Afghanistan.
