After 90 years it has been decided to disband the White Helmets Motorcycle Display Team, because they are 'outdated'.
Apart from the soldiers' pay the White Helmets have been self financing for some years through sponsorship etc.
They have raised the profile of the Royal Corps of Signals, and the Army, with their dazzling, and daring, riding. I believe that the White Helmets are as valid today as they have always been throughout their 90 year history. Their appearances at shows are always popular and very well attended.
As an ex-Royal Signals soldier this team was a part of my time in the Army and I have friends who were in the Display team for many years.
I would like to see them stay a part of the Army.... Change.org petition
