21 EW Regiment stands up

A little catch-up on this one: 2 EW Squadron and its reserve counterpart, 772 EW Squadron, were merged in April to create the 21 EW Regiment:

[Update 14 April 2013: Removed erroneous claim that 21 EW Regiment is the first new regiment in the Canadian army since the Second World War. The second reference (above) describes the merger of the two units as "The first time since WW2 the Canadian army has in fact instated a new regiment." However, as the anonymous commenter on this post pointed out, this is not correct.]

It wasn't the first new regiment to be stood up in Canada since WW2.
