Pace Sticks & Stands

Pace ' Sticking ' to the civilian seems an odd past time. It is thought to have originated from the days of the Crimean War back in 1854 when Royal Artillery Senior Non-Commissioned Officers ( nco's ) would use them to correctly mark out the distance between the gun batteries. Over the years it was hi-jacked by the Infantry and in particular the ' Guards Regiments ' to aid drill. In 1952 ' Pace Sticking ' was taken to new heights. The Academy Sergeant Major ( RMA Sandhurst ) John Lord M.V.O, M.B.E, the heighest ranking Non-Commissioned Officer in the British Army, instigated the world ' Pace Sticking ' championships which were held at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. The competition was held annually between the RMAS and the Guards Depot with teams from around the world taking part in various stages of the competition. The competition still takes place to this day. The Pace Sticks which are now used by the teams have been refined from the old Ministry of Defence issue ' Tree Trunks ' that were first used. Modern Pace Sticks are now a lot thinner and lighter and are referred to as ' Racers '. These are the type of stick supplied by ourselves at ' Guards Gear '.
