A Warder was a small Ceremonial Baton (2 feet long), that symbolized the Office of a Constable or Marshal in Medieval times. Made of wood, they often were covered in silver or other previous metal (and highly decorated). The Warder was used (as was documented at The Battle of Agincourt, 1415) – to be thrown high into the air. This signaled the start of a battle. Often, a reward was given to the soldier who recovered The Warder and returned it. Warders were similar to Wands, Staffs and Rods of Office.
