Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|

That is what the G4VTouchable (and concrete subclasses) provides. After you close the geometry, Geant4 processes it to determine which volume in the hierarchy is active at each point in the world volume. You can then acquire a "touchable" which provides the sequence of placements from the World down to the active volume, including the cumulative set of transforms between world and local coordinates.
If you have a G4Track or G4Step, you can get the touchable associated with the current position already built. If all you have is the closed geometry, then you have to build the touchable yourself, which is non-trivial in general.
In your case, your geometry is simple enough that you can do it directly: you know the placement of the big box in World, and you know the placement of the small box in the big box. The product of those two transform is what you're requesting.
