Flight Lieutenant Eric Stanley Lock
Eric Lock joined the RAF in 1939, completed his training and joined No.41 Squadron at the very start of the Battle of Britain. He became Britain's highest scoring fighter pilot, but in 1941 was sadly downed by ground fire over France and his body was never recovered. This design celebrates Lock as a Fighter Ace with 26 destroyed to his name, but he was part of the RAF that was served by many men and women who were all heroes. Thanks to Andy Perkins of the 'Spitnuts' Facebook Group who provided the research for these designs.
