    Under the British system of organization in WW!, infantry companies were typically numbered and cavalry troops lettered, though most regiments had four troops - A,B,C,D - I think. 

    The Auckland Mounted rifles was apaprently a composite unit, with three squadrons, numbered 3, 4 & 11.  There is more in formation here, if you can puzzle it out, including some links to unit histories at the bottom of the page.  https://nzhistory.govt.nz/war/auckland-mounted-rifles

      Good luck!
