Did precedence play a part in deciding the position that the companies occupied in the combined battalion? For example, were lower-numbered regiments considered senior to higher-numbered ones and were they therfore stationed on the right of the unit?
Also, how was it decided which company would carry the standard? Would it be carried by the company from the senior regiment (again I am assuming, perhaps incorrectly, that lower-numbered regiments were regarded as senior to higher-numbered ones)?
