I am new to the group and would be interested in finding someone who can answer a couple of questions concerning cavalry formations and signals.
Specifically,

If a regiment was was formed up four across by companies, each company divided into two squads , what would that formation be called? Column of fours, column of fours by squad two by two, or what?

A related question. If that formation were preparing to attack an advisary, what would the sequence of bugle calls be if beginning from a stationary position? Advance, then charge or would there be something in between?

Thanks so much for anyone who can assit or direct me towards someone who can.
