Göta signalregemente (Götaland Signal Regiment), designations S 1 Sk and S 2, was a Swedish Army signal regiment, one of the few new formations raised in the 20th century. It was disbanded in 1997. The regiment was garrisoned in Västergötland.

HistoryEdit

The regiment has its origins in a 1944 detached company, Signalregementets kompani i Skövde, of Signalregementet that was garrisoned in Skövde. The company gained the designation S 1 Sk (1st Signal Regiment, Skövde detachment), and was in 1958 upgraded to a separate battalion, and gained the designation S 2.

The battalion was transferred to Karlsborg in 1961 and was renamed Göta signalregemente in 1962 when it was upgraded to regimental size. The parachute ranger school Fallskärmsjägarskolan was attached to the regiment from 1961 until the regiment was disbanded in 1984. However one battalion of the regiment was kept as part of Livregementets husarer as Göta signalbataljon until it was disbanded in 1997.
