Final display #signals farewell to The #White #Helmets
The White Helmets are the internationally acclaimed #motorcycle #display team of The Royal Corps of Signals. Based in #Blandford #Dorset the #team #performs around the world. They were formed in 1927 and every year since then they have been touring the country. Currently they use #Triumph #Tiger #750cc #motorbikes and promote the #Army in general and the #Corps of Royal Signals. They attend a wide variety of events, including fetes, fairs, country shows and, of course, #bike shows.
2017 not only sees the 90ᵗʰ Anniversary of this iconic display team, but also their final display, which takes place on the 30ᵗʰ September. To celebrate this final display of the White Helmets, #BFPS has produced a commemorative cover.
The cover bears an official team photograph by Basia Howard-Harward showing the legendary team performing their famous #stunt “the human pyramid”. The cover bears a 1st Class ‘Post & Go’ #stamp from the Royal Signals Museum, with a special limited edition White Helmets overprint. This will be cancelled by the unique British Forces Postal Service special handstamp No 3206. Both stamp and special handstamp carry the team’s logo.
The covers may be ordered from the BFPS online shop (www.bfps.org.uk/shop) at a cost of just £7.50. A limited-edition version, signed by the photographer Basia Howard-Harward FRPS, will also be available at £15.
Covers may also be ordered by post by sending a cheque (payable to ‘BFPS CIC’) to BFPS The Old Post Office Links Place Elie LEVEN KY9 1AX. #qaranchistory #royalcorpsofsignals #whitehelmets #thewhitehelmets #basiahowardharward #britishforcespostalservice #
