If you Google "Rossleigh Daimlers Edinburgh" you will then see "Sleigh Chauffeur Drive" there is a pic
of Daimlers in front of Hollyrood Palace. The DE27 is in the pic along with some other models.
The DE27 may have been owned by Sleigh and used for Royal duties when the Royal Family were in Edinburgh.
There was also one at Balmoral it was donated by the Royal Family to the Alford Motor Museum in Aberdeenshire.
The Balmoral one must have been owned by the family rather than Rossleigh who also were in Aberdeen.
