New stamp picturing a famous Eric

British Indian Ocean Territory postal administration has issued on the 18th of March 2010 a set of seven stamps commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Each stamp pictures a hero from this battle. One of the stamp of this set falls into my collection of stamps picturing people nammed Eric.

The stamp pictures Eric Stanley Lock (1919-1941) a fighter ace of the Royal Air Force during the World War II who was the most successful british born pilot during the Battle of Britain.

The stamps of the set are issued in the form of mini-sheets containing siw stamps.

Slowly, but surely, my collection of "Eric on stamps" is growing...
