Right Steve ! It's so hard to get at the facts without the source material. From the depths of my memory from discussion group postings last year - I vaguely remember a figure of ca.480 for combined A + B Squadrons 4th & 12th.

I would be interested to know your views on how reliable you consider the evidence for the C Squadrons being in column formation - because then we can resolve the famous photo debate (perhaps once and for all) - where a 3rd echelon is clearly shown behind the first 2 of the right wing of the charge, so the 4th ALH. Look forward to hearing from you, Jeremy.
