The Wendes Artillery Regiment[1] (Swedish language: Wendes artilleriregemente ), designation A 3, was a Swedish Army artillery regiment that traced its origins back to the 17th century. It was disbanded in 2000. The regiment's soldiers were originally recruited from Scania, and it was also garrisoned there.

History[edit | edit source]

The regiment has its origins in the Artillery Regiment raised in 1636. That regiment was split into four new regiments in 1794 of which Wendes Artillery Regiment was one. The regiment was given the designation A 3 (3rd Artillery Regiment) in 1830. In 1893 two companies were split off to form 2nd Svea Artillery Regiment and 2nd Göta Artillery Regiment. The regiment was garrisoned in Kristianstad but moved to Norra Åsum in 1953 and to Hässleholm in 1994 before being disbanded in 2000.
