What happened to Solomon Jacobson, an Interesting Jew?

What happened to Solomon Jacobson?

Who is Solomon Jacobson?

MP Josiah Wedgwood asked about him:


HC Deb 08 May 1935 

Colonel WEDGWOOD asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been called to the sentence of 7½ years' imprisonment passed on Solomon Jacobson, aged 18, a Jewish national fund watchman, for shooting an Arab trespasser who was stealing stones from the quarry where he was on guard; and will he call for a report and consider revision of the sentence?

Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER I have asked the High Commissioner for Palestine for a report on this case.

What were the details? According to the local newspaper:

He was released only in June 1938.

He became a seaman, was mobilized for work in Syria 1941-1942 by Yigal Allon disguised as a Moslem preligious official and later served in the Navy.

Interesting Jew.
