    Who was the 14th company? Each Regiment had 3 battalions, each battalion had 4 companies and a MG company. Line companies were numbered 1 thru 12, while the MG's were 1-2-3. Was the 118th a 4 battalion regiment? Riche B's answer is correct (by my understand the way equipment was marked), I just can't figure out who the 14th company was.
