This Commissioned watercolour depicts last flight of one of the young aces of the Battle of Britain. Eric Stanley Lock was just 22 when on a 'Rhubarb' over the Pas de Calais he radioed to his wingman that he was going on to shoot up a column of german troops. Low on fuel the other three of the group headed for home. He was never seen again, wreckage of his Spitfire was never found despite several searches. He had shot down 27 enemy planes and been party to another 8. He had been Decorated by the King four times.
