Clearing the table for Reichenberg

I promised myself that when DJ painted Grenadier Battalion Alt-Billerbeck (8/46) that I would set up the Reichenberg scenario.
So it is time to clear the table and set up.
I still have a few niggling unanswered questions.
1. The map of the battle in Horace St. Paul shows the army of Bavern in total, count the boxes. Whereas other references have up to five battalions + cavalry on other duties.
2.Also reading a transcript from a journal written by a grenadier from battalion Waldau (one of those five) they left the main corps the day after the battle.
 
I may well have to make a 'half way house' judgement call.
