Simon Gutfield nick name Simy came on S-19 Born in Louisiana, near Shreveport. Physical description: Short, dark-haired, built like a fireplug.

He’d been a “motor mac” on S-19, but like Colonel Billy Flynn, killed in India, he was prior service. In his case, he’s served a hitch in the Marine Corps before joining the Navy—and the Submarine Service, which had fascinated him (and paid more). His size made him a good pig boat sailor, but his shipmates never managed to wash the Marine out of him. Without a sub, he went back doing what he was arguably best at. (See Talk source Facebook PM from Taylor Anderson.)

He is listed in Deadly Shores as Third Marines commander. In Straits of Hell and Blood in the Water he is listed Major XO first Corps 2nd Division.

River of BonesEdit
