Today the Royal Signals Motor Cycle Display Team ‘White Helmets’ will be performing for the very last time at Blandford.

The team has spent 90-years entertaining crowds with their iconic and hair-raising tricks.

Forming in 1927, the white helmets were originally tasked with using motorbikes carrying messages across the battlefield.

In February, the Army said 2017 would be the last season for the team as the unit no longer reflects the Signals in a digital age.

The final show is a celebration. The team announced they will open with the ‘Double Jimmy’ which represents the Royal Signals cap badge affectionately known as ‘Jimmy’ and is based on Mercury the messenger god, and distinguishes the Royal Signals as communicators  

It will also feature all-time favourites tricks such as ‘Charlie’s Diamond’, a four bike cross over at speed, and the White Helmets rite of passage, the Fire Jump.
