la suite...

What is the correct military meaning of " la suite", as in "mis la suite dans son arme"?

I keep coming across this and, interpreting from context, I am guessing it means he was made a supernumerary, or in some sort of immediate reserve position. However, it could also equate to the current practice of 'deep selection' or 'selection outside the zone' for promotion - indicating somebody who is being 'ticked for the top,' so to speak.

Can any of our native French speakers help me out with this subtlety, please?

Many thanks

Tim
