Special Instructions on pg. 91: "Each infantry and mixed division MUST have at least one cavalry attachment."
Table for Attachments pg. 94: Cavalry Attachments - "At least 1 and up 2 per infantry division." Minimum bases - "1 per infantry division." Maximum bases - "2* per infantry division." There's no mention of "mixed divisions".
I assume that the special instructions are correct and that the table should be "per infantry or mixed division".
Why is this confusing? A mixed Division has an entire regiment or two of Cavalry, while an infantry Division has at least one and up to 2 cavalry attachments.
It's not a question of confusion but a question of correcting errors.
The special instructions say that each Mixed division MUST have at least ONE cavalry attachment (not unit / regiment). In other words, according to the special instructions, a Mixed Division which must have a cavalry unit to be a "mixed division" must also, additionally, have a cavalry attachment. A "unit" is not an "attachment"; an "attachment" is not a "unit".
Probably they just meant "an infantry division must have at least one cavalry attachment". In which case the special instructions should read, "Each infantry division should must have at least one cavalry attachment." No need to mention mixed divisions at all.
*Note: I correct the error in my post. The "maximum bases" are 2 not 1 per infantry division.
