BATTLE MAP PLATE - Quatre-Bras 2pm (2nd Update)

I have updated (for the second and last time) the first in a series of "Battle Maps" in order to more realistically represent units and their frontages, i.e.
- French battalion in column attack (2 company front) had a frontage of 45 metres
- French battalion in line (6 company front) had a frontage of 125 metres
- British Regiment in (quarter) column - 20 metre frontage / 48m depth

- British Regiment in Line - 210m frontage

Plate: BM-QB-1
