The Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team The White Helmets

The team's origins lie in precision motorcycling and horseriding demonstrations given by instructors and students from the British Army Signal Training Centre in Yorkshire, beginning in 1927. Riders were normally employed as despatch riders. They have had many names in the past including 'The Red Devils', before the Parachute Regiment team of the same name existed, Mad Signals (on account of the poor brakes on the motorcycles) and only adopted the name 'White Helmets' in 1963.

Bob Hogg Seepdogs & Duck Display

Also thrilling the crowds will be Bob Hogg Sheepdogs & Ducks Display. During the display Bob explains how dogs are trained, then going on to work two, three or four dogs at the same time.
They use border collies for this but they also use their bearded collie Jake.
Sheep geese and ducks may all be part of the display, not to mention our new addition Paxo the chicken. All of this goes towards making their display something out of the ordinary.
