Operation Jiu Jitsu 70th Anniversary Coin
To mark the 70th Anniversary of Operation Jiu Jitsu, we have created, in partnership with the RAF Sculthorpe Heritage Centre this special 2.5 inch collectors coin to commemorate this highly secret and unique operation.
Approved at the highest level by the then Prime Minister Winston Churchill and US President Harry S. Truman, these reconnaissance overflights required flying deep-penetration missions into Soviet territory in American owned aircraft being flown by RAF aircrew.
Limited to just 70 pieces, each coin is numbered and comes in a suitable marked presentation box with an accompanying information card.
