~Regency Wednesday~ Batman

According to the 1835 edition of the Penny cyclopaedia of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, Volume 4, a batman (pronounced bawman) was a person in charge of the cooking utensils and the horse used to convey them from place to place. There was one batman for every company in a regiment while in foreign service.
