There will be a military flavour to some of the highlights of the 146th Bucks County Show on Thursday, August 29.

Billed as one of the country’s best one-day agricultural shows, the event will also offer all the usual demonstrations, rural crafts, horse showing and show jumping at Weedon Park near Aylesbury.

Special attractions this year include the The Brigade of the Band of Gurkhas and the Royal Signals White Helmets motorcycle display team.

First raised in 1859 the band has followed the Gurkha regiment around the globe providing the soundscape to their ceremonial duties.

The discipline of the Royal Signals has given the White Helmets a worldwide reputation for precision and excellence on the back of a 750cc Triumph motorcycle.

In their immaculate uniforms they will perform feats of balance and teamwork in a sometimes fiery display.
