The Adjutant of an Infantry Battalion often required a runner to take urgent messages directly from himself to those they were addressed to.

He would use this runner to do this, and the runner would not do other duties other than stand by the Adj all day( probably make tea now and then!)

To show the recipients that the runner was indeed speaking on behalf of the Adj, and have the authority to do so, he would allow the runner to carry his Officers swagger stick.

This man would have been selected on the previous day's guard mounting as the best turned out, hence "stick man"

I am surprised you were never chosen, you had all kind of little bullshit tricks to enhance your turn out, remember?

Joe.
