Default Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry

I am nearly finished restoring a scout car, in North Africa colour scheme, the owner has requested it to be marked up in the unit markings of a good friend of his who was in the 1st Bn. Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, attached to the 10th Indian Division. I do know that they took part in the Battle of Gazala. I spoke to the DCLI veteran and being light infantry, he did not remember they had many vehicles, having to walk everywhere! So with a bit of artistic licence here, I am searching for either markings of this unit, or a recce unit in same division at that time.

Is there anyone with accurate records of this campaign that can help? I have been through all my books and cannot find anything positive.
