Sudden thought: The whole 'Units in the City' thing... suppose they reduced the City to an Outpost. Aren't they just garrison zones with no outer City?
Yeah, I've just checked the glossary of Book One. A City may be a small Outpost consisting solely of a Garrison. So then, I think Parson wants Sizemore to reduce the size of the City, so that the Gobwin Knob Units can leave the City without having to leave the hex, just by virtue of being outside the Garrison when the deed is done.

Parson knew about them from their attack on Ansom, and they are currently unaccounted for, most likely just hanging out outside the city. Bury the bodies in shallow graves, wait for Haggar to come into the city, spring a Wrequiem, and bring down the 100 remaining Haggar troops in an ambush and add them to the army instead of letting them run off with Jetstone's remaining forces. And thus, Stanley gets a few platoons of rockers to headbang to his phat licks.
Haggar were half a turn's march away from the City at the start of play, they have since marched past it to attack Ansom, who defeated them. They may not have lost half of their soldiers as Charlie asked, but they did
lose their Chief Warlord and many others along with him. Also, they haven't been mentioned for a very
long time. They're out of this fight at least
until the next Turn, which they may not live to see.
