Group Ride Back Marker

Can anyone explain to me what the Back Marker does in a group ride?

"Let us celebrate our arrangement with the adding of chocolate to milk."

According to one of many hits on Google:

"A “Back Marker” (someone riding behind the slowest rider) may be required to ensure that nobody is left behind on a ride. Ideally the Back Marker should be a strong rider that is capable of riding ahead to get help if required and may carry a first aid kit if available. It is unlikely that someone with first aid training will be attending every ride, but having a first aid kit available may be of use in an accident or emergency. Ideally, the Front and Back Markers should have a mobile phone."

So basically, it's someone that keeps an eye out for trouble and ready to help when it happens.
