1. The concept of using the balance of the cavalry move to retire never occured. The critical question therefore is, at what distance do the infantry test for square ?
2. Suggesting the infantry might not change into line with cavalry so close is simply not looking at the actual situation. The cavalry are disordered. There is no question of them charging.
3. Where does it say a shaken disordered unit can move ?
4. I still think it's patent nonsense not to allow a damaged disordered cavalry unit to move away from a formed square ...

This is a rules mechanics issue, not a battlefield tactics one.
Infantry with SB muskets are deployed in line within charge range of a unit of Lancers. Under which military system is this NOT a valid manuver ?
If you are suggesting the rules are deliberatly written to make this sort of manuver unviable then BP is seriously broken ....
Secondly, Big Al you are being disingenious at best. A forced compulsory retirement is not the same as moving and it is wrong of you to suggest otherwise.
I sense a pro-infantry prejudice here.

If this fails to resolve the issue I have a decent pair of pistols that I am only too happy to make available to you at 7.30am behind the nunnery tomorrow.
