Companies typically contain three platoons and a staff. The staff (in a standard rifles company) consists of a commander (major), a second in command (captain/lieutenant), a sergeant major (colour sergeant) and a quartermaster sergeant (staff sergeant).


Rifles companies contain three platoons each, along with a four-man staff. Each platoon is led by a lieutenant or a second lieutenant and numbered within their regiment.
