    "Attender in the public baths"

    Can you help me with the meaning of this dialogue:

    A: I was what they called a boy soldier. My dad joined me.
    B: Did he?
    A: Attender in the public baths, he was.

    I get the feeling it is some sort of an expression but I don't know what it means.

    An attendant is an employee who (waits on)(helps) customers.
