27L were a armoured car equipped reconnaissance regiment that worked direct to HQ Eighth Army so the only reliable place to find any information on what they got up to is the War Diaries.  If they had been in an Armd Bde or Armd Div, at least you could have had a better chance of finding references to their work.

Get me through and I will put you in touch with the person who gets War Diaries for me from Kew.  As a battlefield guide, I use his services a lot and he is not expensive.
