Letters / Archivist grateful for any help

In the mid-1930s the creed called Social Credit was discussed at length in Shetland, as elsewhere.

The main promoter of it here was Lieut. Col. J. Creagh Scott, a publicist from the extreme right. (He became very fond of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.)

An Englishman, he lived in Voe at one point. Does anyone know what took him here? Another publicist, J. Johnston, wrote long letters to the Shetland Times about the creed. He was based in Aberdeen. I wonder if he had a Shetland connection, and, if so, who he was. I’d be grateful for help.
