Abstract: Combinatorial results are used to calculate the dimension of the intersection of any two irreducible components of the set in the flag variety fixed by the action of a unipotent element of $ {\text{G}}{{\text{L}}_n}$ whose Jordan decomposition has two blocks. This is then related to the "left cells" of Kazhdan and Lusztig, which are used to construct representations of $ {S_n}$, the Weyl group of $ {\text{G}}{{\text{L}}_n}$.
