Hälsinge Regiment

The Hälsinge 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.

History

The regiment has its origins in fänikor (companies) raised in Hälsingland and Gästrikland in the 1550s and 1560s. In 1615, these units, along with additional fänikor from the nearby provinces of Medelpad, Ångermanland and Västerbotten, 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 Regiment was one. Sometime around 1624, the grand regiment was permanently split into three smaller regiments, of which Hälsinge Regiment was one.

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

In 1634 the regiment consisted of eight companies: i) Livkompaniet, ii) Överstelöjtnantens kompani, iii) Majorens kompani, iv) Alsta kompani, v) Delsbo kompani, vi) Ovansjö kompani, vii) Arbrå kompani and viii) Jervsö kompani. By 1814 there were eight companies still, namely, i) Livkompaniet, ii) Forssa kompani, iii) Järvsö kompani, iv) Delsbo kompani, v) Färnebo kompani, vi) Arbrå kompani, vii) Alfta kompani, and viii) Ovansjö kompani.

The regiment was given the designation I 14 (14th Infantry Regiment) in a general order in 1816. Hälsinge Regiment 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.

Heraldry and traditions

The regiment has carried a number of colour over the years. But it is best known from the colors black and white, with black symbolizing Hälsingland and white Gästrikland.

The coat of the arms of the Hälsingland Regiment is based upon the provincial badge of Hälsingland, saltire sable and argent, a buck rampant or, armed and langued gules. The shield surmounted two muskets in saltire.

Motto: "Fasthet, Förmåga, Förtroende" ("Solidity, Ability, Confidence")

March: "Marcia militaris" (Schmidt)

In connection with the disbandment of the regiment, its traditions and heriage came from 1 January 1998 onwards to be continued by Gävleborg Group (Gävleborgsgruppen), and from 1 July 2013 the Gävleborg Battalion, within the Gävleborg Group.
