i did something and now i'm trying to confirm whether this was kosher or not...
Here's the situation:
The top-most Lusitani Infantry is activated (by an Order card, not an "automatic" activation because he's in melee). He is a Skirmisher. What i did was:
a) move him backwards 1 UD (with no penalty because he's a Skirmisher)
b) threw his javelins at the unit directly in front of him. (i'd have preferred to javelin the Peasants which were in contact with the Carthaginian General, but units in melee are not legal ranged targets.)
c) moved directly beside his General, so that they were directly side-by-side. This overran the encirclement marker on his General's flank, automatically removing it and doing 1 damage to that Peasant.
This seems to be legal, given Example 1 on page 24 of the rulebook, but can someone confirm that this sequence was legal (for a Skirmisher, at least)?

Your explanation is almost correct. In fact points a and b are correct. However charges should be made moving forward, so if you move it backwards (you may make it with the skirmish unit) you can't charge in the same movement.
