In 1957 change of affiliation to 4 LAA Regt and the Corps became known as 2483 4 LAA Regt RCA Cadet Corps. Due to an administrative error, these changes were never approved nor promulgated. affil.: PPCLI, Aug 1, 1958. In 1958 under the new sponsorship of the PPCLI Regiment the Corps was re-designated as 2483 The Esquimalt Cadet Corps (Princess Patricia's) and were affiliated with PPCLI. 9 Nov 1963 due to the rotation of PPCLI to Europe a transfer of sponsorship and affiliation was effected to the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada.
