I know all the following in brackets below ,but I need to know where Batallions fitted into all of this.

(''An army was made up of a number of Corp
A Corp was made up of a number of divisions.
An infantry division was made up of a number of brigades.
An infantry brigade was made up of a number of battalions.
An infantry battalion was made up of 4 companies.
An infantry company was made up of 4 platoons.

An infantry regiment had a number of battalions but these did not often serve together, but were split among brigades.

RE companies were attached to divisions, there was no higher RE formation in the field.''

The text you quote explains where battalions fit into this particular army structure. They each comprise 4 companies; a number of battalions form a brigade.

If you mean where does a battalion headquarters fit in, well it's just like it sounds - it would be the headquarters of an individual battalion, i.e. where the commander and their immediate staff would be located.
