Playing the part of the nominal?

It's "roll", dammit.

As in 'bread roll' - not 'bread role'

"Nominal Roll" - as in the Roll of Parchment on which were inscribed the Names (hence Nominal) of all those on unit strength.

If only "sausage roll" was so easily explained.
 
Think that's a challenge?

Try "sausage role"
