No. 2 Squadron’s traditional Army Co-Operation role is reflected in the “AC” of its title, its motto Hereward (Guardian of the Army), and the symbol of a Wake knot on its crest. Its unofficial nickname is “Shiny Two”.
This coin is to commemorate II (AC) Squadron’s deployment to Japan as part of Operation Eastern Vortex in 2016. Only 8 coins were made available to the public after being distributed by the squadron. There is also a Korean version as part of the same deployment
I’m always looking to buy or trade for squadron coins. Please message me if you have any available.
