I am interested in Peter Solotti, who was born in 1907 in Lerwick, son of Peter Solotti, cooper, and Laura Ann Thomason from Lunnasting. He was a nephew of Alexander Louis Solotti, the Lerwick ice-cream seller.
Peter himself became a cooper, and seems to have lived in Aberdeen and Lerwick at various times up till World War 2.
In 1939 he became a committee member of the National Unemployed Workers’ Movement in Lerwick, and in July that year was a founder member of the very short-lived Lerwick branch of the Communist Party.
I can’t find any reference to him later than that. Does anyone know what happened to him?
