I need some help from the WW2 historians on the list. I need to know if the
light tanks used by the 7th Armored Division, 87th Cavalry Reconnaissance
Squadron (F Troop was the light tanks) around the battle at the St.Vith
crossroads December 1944 were Stuarts. Also what would the vehicle's unit
markings look like i.e. 7A 87RCN F5 (A being the triangle symbol).

Any info would be greatly appreciated.
