Thanks for both replys, sorry I wasn't very clear with the description. What I'm tryiing to describe is a mounted column/regiment made up of say 4 companies. They are organized by company order, call them company A, followed by B, then C, and finally company D.

Each company is organized into two squads. The members of each squad are riding in twos (side by side) so overall the column is four men wide; ie. the first row would be two men from first squad, company A, riding next to two men from second squad, company A. That coninues through Company A and then repeats for each company in return.

If I were riding in that formation how would I describe it after the fact to someone and reflect the fact that we were organized by comany and squad and four wide?

Company Company Company Company
D C B A
********** ********** ********** **********
Squad 1
********** ********** ********** **********
>>>>>>>
********** ********** ********** **********
Squad 2
********** ********** ********** **********

I don't know if the graphic will come thru as I created it but maybe a picture is worth a thousand words.

Thanks again for your assistance
