'pologies if this has been asked before, but what is the significance of the khaki SD cap worn by the corporal in this photo?
Its a Pace stick not a Swagger stick.Help a layman out here, chaps...
Why are some equipped with red capbands and some not?
Why's the staff/colour sergeant (??) in the ranks whilst his junior (in rank) is stood proud on the end with swagger stick?
So it is (looking at a big picture on a big screen now, not actiddly one on my 'phone).Its a Pace stick not a Swagger stick.
Pace stick is used for exactly what it states,it can be adjusted to diffrent paces or spaces between ranks. Unscrewing the brass screw the pace stick opens up and is hinged,once you set the pace/distance screw it back up.
