What the %$#@ is a "pace stick"?

#1
I have come across a stumbling block in my British education. Will someone please tell me what a "pace stick" is and what it is used for?

Please remember, I'm the token American, so please respond in English, not Brit. :D

Cheers

The language we speak here in England is called English - not 'Brit'. What you speak, I imagine, is a dialect called American English ... but don't be down-hearted; many non-English people learn to speak English rather than (or in addition to) their native dialects - the Scotch are particularly good at it, for example.

Scots, not Scotch. You will learn some day.

Hense why our Sgt Mjr's are referred to as being 'Stick men' or the singular 'Stick man' as they all carry pace sticks in whilst in peace time garrison locations.(and some really bad ones on ops).

I have had very intimate dealings with pace sticks throughout my career. The back of my head bears scars from at least three of them. :roll:

Drill instructors carry them for when they forget how to walk and breath at the same time: it reminds them how long a human stride should be. :roll:

So does Flash have a closet full of them? Aunty Stella must have several too.
It is device for measuring the mouth size of an American.

1 "pace" (approximatley 3 feet) is the average size required for the average fat yank to shove 13 big macs into his over sized gullet 6 times daily.

It also has a useful metal point on the end of it for poking the said yank in the eyes afterwards, whilst the experienced user can open the pace stick to form a "double eye gouging" implement, useful for dealing with the most obnoxious colonials. This double eye gouge is normally accompanied by the user yelling "are you fcuking blind, thats British armour you cnut, stop fcuking shooting at it" or words to that effect.

Hope this clarifies.
