What was a Deputy Comissary-General?

Hello,
I'm just trying to find a bit of a background for a chap. What regiment he was in.

The chap is George Stephen Nugent Hodges Nugent. I have his death in 1874 in Devon.

But what throws me is that any mention I've found of him says that he was a Deputy Comissary General, what exactly does that mean? Was a he a soldier, if so what service was he in? His son went into the Royal Engineers.

Many thanks,

Sue hogben.
