HistoryEdit

The regiment has its origins in the field signal (later telegraphy) company raised in 1871. This unit then evolved and finally became Uppland Regiment in 1974. That regiment was disbanded in 2006 but was replaced by the Command and Control Regiment, which took part the role that the Uppland Regiment previously had. The regiment was commanded by Lena Hallin, the first female regimental commander in Swedish history, until January 2011. The current regimental commander is colonel Johan Axelsson.
