    Default Last one

    The guard nodded. «Last one back, sir.» He pressed a button to open the second door.

    "Last one back, sir" - what does it mean?

    Thank you

    It could be the door that he just came thru. In prisons there are a number of doors that people must pass thru. A 'new' can't be opened until the previous one has been closed and secured.

    "Last one back, sir"
    "Last one back, sir" means "the last one (person) has come back, sir"

    For security reasons perhaps, in some places/buildings/etc. there are two doors. The first door can be opened by anyone but the second one cannot be opened without a reason. In your example, the guard is reporting to his superior the reason for opening the second door.
