After 90 years it has been decided to disband the White Helmets Motorcycle Display Team, because they are 'outdated'.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....

I only asked if the Purple helmets are still going and my question disappeared? Anyway it looks like they still are https://m.facebook.com/The-Purple-Helmets-442062035913697/
As for the white helmets I wish them well but like so many long standing traditions they either succumb to cutbacks or have run their course. They were once an elite team with little to compare them to......now we have a glut of X games thrills and youtube wannabes. Now if they could Travis Pastrana and Red bull on side I could see them carrying on.

they still are an elite team .. these guys (and now gals) can't even ride a bike at the beginning of their course and are put through such rigours and training to see them get to the standards required ... no one wants the dreaded black peak.. but everyone gets it sooner or later ;)

x-games riders are totally different to these riders tbh!

Nooooooo!!
When I was working at a festival I got a chance during my break to see these fine lads in action.
Then later as I was going off duty I chanced to walk by their trucks as they all emerged in black tee shirts and chinos. For a moment as I walked through them I was engulfed in the smell of freshly showered recently active super fit male scent.
I will not only sign any petition going but chain myself to railings if need be.........<3
