Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Flight Lieutenant Eric Stanley Lock DSO, DFC & Bar (19 April 1919 - 3 August 1941 ) was a fighter ace of the Royal Air Force during World War II. Lock became the RAF's most successful British-born pilot during the Battle of Britain, shooting down 16.5 German aircraft. After the Battle of Britain he went on to bring his overall total to 26.5 victories in 25 weeks of operational sorties over a one-year period - during which time he was hospitalised for six months. During the Battle of Britain he became known to his RAF chums as "Sawn Off Lockie," because of his extremely short stature. Within less than six months of becoming one of the most famous RAF pilots in the country, he went missing in action over Calais.show more
