Re: French Motorcycle and Cavalry Questions

1) If I wanted to portray a motorcycle platoon in the RDP or RAM of a Light Cavalry Division, I should just be able to use the list/org for the Reconnaissance Motorcycle Fusilier Platoon and use the DLC support list, correct? I've been gleaning some info from the web and my library and don't see an...
