If the combat odds are greater than 5:1, do the column shifts start from there or do they start at 5:1? There were times when the Brits had an 8:1 combat, so with 1L for attacking from fields, 1L for dug-in defender, 1L for defender in close terrain, it ends up being 2:1 when starting from 5:1, but would be 5:1 if starting from 8:1.

See the example at the end of 8.3.1.

It's the final combat odds that is resolved, so the 5:1 should be used in your case (see 8.3.1).

Thanks all - appreciate it. Guess I could have looked through the rules myself, but these items are hard to find, especially with the long and thorough rules for this game.
