Hälsinge regemente



History

The Hälsingland Regiment (Swedish: Hälsinge regemente), designations I 14, I 14/Fo 49 and I 14/Fo 21, was a Swedish Army infantry regiment that traced its origins back to the 16th century. It was disbanded in 1997. The regiment's soldiers were originally recruited from the provinces of Hälsingland and Gästrikland, and it was later garrisoned in Gästrikland.​


The regiment has its origins in fänikor (companies) raised in Hälsingland and Gästrikland in the 1550s and 1560s. In 1615, these units—along with fänikor from the nearby provinces of Medelpad, Angermanland and Västerbotten—were organised by Gustav II Adolf into Norrlands storregemente, of which eleven of the total 24 companies were recruited in Hälsingland and Gästrikland. Norrlands storregemente consisted of three field regiments, of which Hälsinge regemente was one. Sometime around 1624, the grand regiment was permanently split into three smaller regiments, of which Hälsinge regemente was one.

The regiment was officially raised in 1630 although it had existed since 1624. Hälsinge regemente was one of the original 20 Swedish infantry regiments mentioned in the Swedish constitution of 1634. The regiment was also called Joakim Brahes regemente after its first commander Joakim Brahe. It was allotted in 1682 as the second Swedish regiment to be so, after Dalregementet.

The regiment was given the designation I 14 (14th Infantry Regiment) in a general order in 1816. Hälsinge regemente was garrisoned in Gävle from 1909. In 1973, the regiment gained the new designation I 14/Fo 49 as a consequence of a merge with the local defence area Fo 49. When the local defence area changed designation to Fo 21 in 1982, the designation changed to I 14/Fo 21. The regiment was disbanded in 1997, and the barracks that had been refurbished in 1995–1996 were turned into a college campus for the University College of Gävle.​



About us

We're international, English speaking regiment composed of people all around the world, we're just friends who bumped into this awesome mod called The Deluge.

Mostly all of the members in this regiment are from the 51st in NW, however it was Me (Radius) and Jacmob01 who found the mod first. We both really love the mod so we decided to spread it around to the other members of the 51st and we now have a fair amount of people playing the mod on a regular basis. Seeing that other people do clans in this mod, we felt like we would want to participate and make the community grow. We therefore decided to make the Hälsingland Regiment, which will be a pike and shot.
