In Festung Budapest, CG I (and II since the setup instructions are the same) the Initial Vannay Coy is given the setup instructions "on or east of hexrow A35-J39", North is the "A" row, and East is lower numbers.
I'm preparing to play as the Russians, so I'd like to know where the opposition might be, but I don't want to take this too seriously. Does that particular company have to setup in any lesser numbered hex, but still in A-J hexrows? Or does the "east of" also permit south of the named hexes? (Basically anywhere on the rest of the map not near the Russian Entry area).
