I saw that in mixed order, one third of a battalion must be fed forward as skirmisher. What is the background of the one third. Britsh battallions only had 1/10th, French 1/6th as lightskirmishers. I know that maybe more men could be fed in but 1/3rd?
When also having light battalions, rifles etc the british could have almost 50% in their skirmish line; imho much too much.
Also, when considering Austrian/Russian troops is this a little bit high.
How do other interpret or handle this?
