@Mjm Gcek.

In English, Bond Staggering is done by providing queen closer after first brick in Header Course.

While in Dutch, Bond Staggering is done by providing 3/4 bat at the start in the stretcher course.

I think it depends on the type of course whether it's in stretcher or header type course.

If anyone have a correct explanation please give details.
