Commentaires : 82nd Abegweit Light Infantry officers cap badge. The 82nd Abegweit Light Infantry was an infantry regiment of the Canadian Army. Originally founded in 1875 as the Queen's County Provisional Battalion of Infantry, it went through several name changes including: 1876 - Queen's County Battalion of Infantry; 1879 - 82nd Queen's County Battalion of Infantry; 1906 - 82nd Abegweit Light Infantry; 1920 - The Prince Edward Island Regiment; and acquired its last title, Prince Edward Island Highlanders, in 1927. 'Abegweit' is the native word for 'resting on the waves' as a reference to Prince Edward Island. The regiment was disbanded in 1946. The Prince Edward Island Highlanders were allied to the Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) and were kitted as Black Watch except for badges. Officers wore grey Balmorals in Service Dress and Battle Dress. The Prince Edward Island Coat of Arms shows three small oak trees under one large oak tree. The three small trees represent the three counties of Prince Edward Island, while the larger tree represents Great Britain. This arrangement of trees is echoed in the Latin motto, "PARVA SUB INGENTI" which can be translated to, 'The Small under the protection of the Great.' On this badge the three small oak trees are replaced by three pine trees. It is unclear why, though, in 1906 the Prince Edward Island Coat of Arms had only been officially granted for one year. This should not have cased any confusion, however, as the shield design of the four trees arranged under the golden lion passant of England and the Latin motto had been used ever since Prince Edward Island became a British colony in 1767 as a great seal.
