Last weekend at the Preston Military Show held at Fulwood Barracks a world famous motorcycle display team put on a spectacular show.

The Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team, know as the White Helmets, returned to the city to demonstrate their skill and entertain the crowds.

The record-holding White Helmets have existed as an organisation since the first public displays of horsemanship and motorcycle riding were given by instructors and students from the Signal Training Centre in Yorkshire in 1927.

Recognised by many as the best in the world they has been performing for over 80 years.

The team of 25 volunteer soldiers from the Corps tour Britain and Europe every year.
