This layout is based on US company staff combined with elements of regimental structure because the Auxiliary has no parent unit. The organization is deliberately officer-heavy. An infantry company would often be commanded by a captain with lieutenants in charge of 3-4 platoons of mainly enlisted. Special Forces companies are often commanded by a major, as here, because they operate in small sub-units where more leadership and discretion is required. This structure is also intended to be able to rapidly muster volunteers underneath it, and the quads (described below under Operational Units) step in to organize these work parties of volunteers as rough platoons. In an extended emergency, we then have a convenient structure for rapidly training and deploying the full company's worth of personnel or possibly even a battalion. In normal (non-emergency) operation, we would collect NCOs to hold onto special expertise these work-parties will need to do their jobs, with enlisted personnel coming and going over time.
