Regiment Pace Stick Colour

I have been informed in the RLC RSM carries Rosewood pace stick , CSM Black and SNCOs who have passed AADC carry Light oak and clarification on this?
cheers
Edit
Can't seem to find this written down anywhere just what I have been told

They're all brown so no RSM can ever be told that the piece of shit 'isn't at this end Sir.....'

I can't be 100% certain. But, from my memory, that is bollox. The CSMs and RSMs I have known have all carried brown pace sticks.

Welsh Guards carry black pace sticks. But they are Infantry Soldiers and not RLC.

What was the question again?

As there are no regulations on the use of pace sticks in the British Army, not even stick drill, anything that anyone says about colour or issue stick vs racing stick is complete bollocks or pseudo tradition like the number of studs in ammo boots, use of the word "fella" etc.

Stick drill is covered in the All Arms Drill Manual, the type of wood should be in RLC Soldiers Dress Regs, I'll check tomorrow, but if not it's rosewood for all ranks in the RLC if you're buying one (being drill trained, or not, makes no difference, carrying a pace stick is appointment based not qualification), if you don't want to buy one you can use the issued 'plank' without any bother.

Not sure about use of the word "fella", but Pace Sticks are covered in chapter 8 of the Drill Manual.

And this thread just about sums it all up! A supposedly technical Corps worrying about what type of wood a pacestick should be made out of? What a big fat pile of festering sheep shit!

From corps instructions: Pace Sticks. Pace sticks are to be Racer Pattern, in rosewood. Pace sticks are only to be issued to those personnel in the specific roles requiring that item (i.e. SSM/RSM/Instructor posts). Unless purchased at private expense, the pace stick is to returned to the QMs department on cessation of that post.Posted from the ARRSE Mobile app (iOS or Android)
Chapter B Paragraph 61 to be precise and it took a non Loggie all of 3 mins to find it on the intranet ^~
