A squad possessing a Demo Charge finds itself Adjacent to a stack of enemies and attempts to place the DC as its first action in the Mph. The enemies fire promptly breaking the squad. A nearby friendly leader moves into the now broken squad's hex and, following A4.44, recovers the DC from the squad. The leader then attempts to place the DC on the Adjacent stack of enemies. Is this (second) placement attempt by the leader legal? A23.3 has me confused which says "if the Placing unit is broken, pinned, or eliminated before or during Placement, the DC is not operably Placed, remains with the Placing unit and may not attack - although it is still usable for future Recovery / Placement attempts".
