Adjutants

Adjutant – “Usually a senior captain (sometimes a major). As the commanding officer’s personal staff officer, he was once in charge of all the organization, administration and discipline for a battalion or regiment, although now the bulk of administrative work is carried out by the Administrative Officer.”
