What I know about the word is as follows:
—It is a verb.
—Its meaning relates to movement.
—The word is used in the context of the military/army/troops.
—It is between two and three syllables long.
—It may begin with a "k" (I am not certain on this point).
—I remember thinking that the word seemed foreign or somewhat unusual both in sound and spelling, when coming across it.
—It was used in one of the few military narrative segments of The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.
I have not been able to remember this word for over a year, so your help is very much appreciated!
