Muskets and Mohawks: Light Infantry

Ed or Bob,

Light Infantry are specifically categorized as "Regulars" and are described as "British Regulars trained to operate as Light infantry in 1758" and "Regulars trained for fighting unformed in difficult terrain." I've looked high and low in the rules and can't find any way in which they are treated differently than standard-issue Regulars in woods or difficult terrain.

Have I missed something, presuming Lights should have some advantage in woods or difficult terrain compared to regular Regulars?

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Yep, they count as Irregular when unformed so have modifiers on the Charge Into Melee Table (page 41), behave differently on the Reaction Tests (page 40 passing 1d6), as well have having a chance of better Rep with a +1 modifier (page 9).
