THE HISTORY OF COURIERS


Long before the days of motor vehicles, in ancient times, homing pigeons, runners and horseback riders used to be the fastest way to send letters and packages. According to some sources, foot messengers ran several miles to their destinations. In the middle ages, royal courts maintained their own messengers who were paid a higher wage than common labourers. The word courier is derived from the Latin word "currere" meaning to run. Other words were also derived from currere, including currency, occurrence and current. Herodotus, a Greek historian born in 484 BC was quoted as saying "Not snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor night keeps them from accomplishing their appointed courses with all speed " During World War ll, Nancy Wake was known as the white mouse and was the most decorated service woman in the allied forces and became the gestapos most wanted spy. She was a journalist and served as a courier for the French resistance. During World War l, the second cavalry regiment contained 400 men who served as couriers and scouts in the combined American-French effort against the Germans. On September 11, 1918 the regiment rode through the night and managed to get five miles behind German lines. The past and the present have shown that couriers are still a vital service for both people and companies.
