The White Helmets are the internationally acclaimed motorcycle display team of The Royal Corps of Signals. They are based in Blandford, Dorset but perform around the world.
Origins and history of The White Helmets
In 1928 the Cavalry Signals organised a motor-cycle display based on the musical rides by the cavalry. Well received, it led to the combination of a motor-cycle and equestrian display team, later the ‘White Helmets’ motor-cycle display team which became internationally well known and continues to thrill and excite at national and international stunt performances. Now with an amazing three world records to their name they perform to more than one million people annually.
The museum houses various models of motorcycle including the Triumph Tiger 70 which was used by the Royal Signals Display Team from 1935-1938.
