27 Squadron served on the North West Frontier of India during the 1920s and 1930s. At the start of the war in Europe, it became a training unit but it was equipped with Blenheims and posted to Malaya in February 1941. The Squadron was disbanded following the Japanese invasion but reformed in India in September 1942 and operated over Burma. The squadron became an air-jungle rescue unit in April 1945 and performed this role to the end of the war using Beaufighters and Mosquitos.
