The 27th Lancers was a cavalry regiment of the British Army from 1941 to 1945.
The regiment was raised in June 1941 from a cadre of personnel taken from the 12th Royal Lancers, and was assigned to 11th Armoured Division as the divisional reconnaissance regiment. It was later withdrawn and held under command of GHQ.
In 1943, it was shipped to Egypt and in 1944 moved to Italy, where it served as an independent reconnaissance regiment for the Allied Force Headquarters, and finished the war in Austria, where it was disbanded in August 1945. Some personnel were transferred to the 12th Lancers.
