Biography Edit

In 1920 PD, Gaunt held the rank of Commander and served as Captain Victoria Saunders' executive officer aboard the superdreadnought HMS Hercules.

Gaunt was seen by Saunders as an efficient executive officer, the sort who always got the details right and developed an almost uncanny ability to anticipate his captain's desires. He had a powerful attachment to doing things “by the book”, coupled with an aversion to taking risks. He disliked what he used to call "glory hounds", officers who in his opinion took unneccessary risks to achieve glorious conduct.

Because of this, Captain Saunders decided to add the notion to his evaluation that she found him "not recommended for independent command", which would effectively take from him any chance of ever getting his own command. (SI1)
