They would be the first section of the company, containing the most experienced soldiers.
Four sections (each battalion had 4 companies) could make up, if necessary, an assault company.
Although the principle of assault troops would have been known since 1915, more knowledge became available for the army when in 1916 military attach├ęs were sent to Britain, France and Germany.
