Pilot Officer Eric Stewart Isaacson Hallows was an English officer of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve who died during the Second World War.

He was born on 10 September 1906, in Camberwell, the son of stage actors Sydney Noble and Beatrice Blanche Hallows (née Isaacson), both of London. Hallows married, in 1937, to Murlis MacFarquhar. In 1939, he was working as an ambulance driver having formerly followed in the acting footsteps of his parents.[1]

Hallows, an air gunner in 99 Squadron, died of injuries sustained on 30 October 1940, when his Vickers Wellington (T2546) crashed into a hill, near Otterburn, after getting lost on its return from an operation against Berlin. He was the crew's only fatality.[2]

He is buried in Willesden Jewish Cemetery.
