French Dragoons question

Me again. The guy that asked the Curassiers question.

I finally found the 'juxtapose' i was looking for. I saw a picture of French Dragoons, dismounted and manning a Hotchkiss machine gun. Perfect.

The only problem is that they don't seem to be wearing the nice shiney breast plate that the Curassiers wear. Did the dragoons ever wear such armour or was that strictly a Curassier item?

Conversely, did the Curassier ever fight dismounted in WWI and if so could they have manned a machine gun position?

I like the shiney breast plates and would like to encorporate them in my piece.
