Obituary: Robert Somerville

Robert Somerville, also known as Bobby or Mr. Netherdale, passed away.

The 2018 documentary film, which showed his revolutionary protest, confirmed his death on 1 October 2021 via Twitter.

In the 1970s, Robert was a worker at the East Kilbride plant of the Rolls Royce. At the same time, Augusto Pinochet staged a military coup against then Chile’s president Salvador Allende.

With the coup ongoing, he and his colleagues refused to work on any planes used in the conflict. Although labeled civil disobedience, his acts were for a noble purpose, and the film portrays it beautifully.

His lifelong achievements include an MBE that he received for his industrial relations works at Rolls Royce. Furthermore, the Republic of Chile had recently made him a Commander for his human rights activism in Chile.

Regarding his funeral, it hasn’t been disclosed publically. The cause of his death is also a mystery at the moment.

Hopefully, Robert’s soul rests in peace, and his family passes through these tough times with a strong heart.
