DOG ROBBER :
any AIDE or REMF; so-called for their practice of taking from the field
soldier to provide for the commander and staff [cf: British "bulldog"
assistant to proctor]. Also, a Naval officer in CIVVIES while ashore on
leave; compare MUFTI.

I first recall this from the movie The Americanization of Emily in which
James Garner plays an admiral's dog robber.
