ROYAL LIFEREGIMENTS GRENADIERS
The regiment, formerly known as the Liferegiment on foot, was
formed in 1893 by merging the Lifegrenadiers on foot and Närkes regiment.
It was located in Örebro until disbanded in 1992.
No 3 Royal liferegiment on foot had its origins in the liferegiment
on horse that was divided into three corps in 1791. One of these was the Liferegimentbrigades
light infantrybattallion that from 1808 was known as the Liferegimentbrigades
grenadiers. In 1815 the unit was named Liferegimenets grenadiercorps and
became an independant unit.
No 21 Royal Närkes regiment traces its heritage to the Närkes
- Värmlands regiment that was split into two separate regiments in 1812.
The regiments colors were light blue and white.
