Eric Sutherland Lomax (born 1919) was a British Army officer who was sent to a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp in 1942. He is most famous for writing a book, The Railway Man (ISBN 0-09-958231-7), on his experience before, during, and after the war, which won the 1996 NCR Book Award and the J. R.

John McCarthy, a journalist who was held hostage for five years, described Lomax's book as "an extraordinary story of torture and reconciliation".
