Dear Benoit, see if this helps:

Truppen–Eintheilung des Rüchelschen Korps am 14. Oktober 1806
Lettow–Vorbeck, vol. I, pp. 423–424

Avantgarde
KR Bailliodz
3 sqdns DR Katte (2 sqdns detached to Hohenlohe)
4 sqdns HR Köhler
reitende Batt. Neander
= 12 sqdns, 1 Batt.

Gros
Linke Kolonne

IR Strachwitz
IR Tschepe
Füs Bat Sobbe
Rechte Kolonne
IR Alt–Larisch
IR Winning
IR Wedell
= 11 battalions

Reserve
Linke
IR Schenk
1 sqdn HR Köhler
12-pdr Batt Schäfer
= 2 battalions, one sqdn, one btty
Mittlere
Gren Bat Borstell
Gren Bat Hallmann
= 2 battalions
Rechte
II/Treuenfels*
30 cuirassiers from KR Baillodz
12-pdr Batt Kirchfeld
= 2/3 “old battalion” and one btty

Ausserdem
one battalion of Treuenfels* “aus Weimar”
one battalion of Treuenfels* with the artillery park
Vorposten
Füs. Bat. Ernest
Jäger Komp. Kalckreuth
DR Wobeser Nr. 14
½ reitende Batt. Lehmann
All of the above L–V lists as “…unter General v. Wobeser, welche am Webicht–Holz bei Weimar noch zur Verwendung kamen.”
= 2 ⅓ “old battalions,” one Jäger company, 5 sqdns, ½ reitende Batterie.

“Summe der Streitbaren” on 14 October: 18 battalions, 1 Jäger company, 18 sqdns, 3 ½ batteries = 15,260 Mann.
* Note: Lettow–Vorbeck comments that the battalions of Treuenfels were the “new two–rank battalions;” he equates these to 2/3 of an “old battalion” hence the rather odd reference to "2/3" of a battalion etc.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
