Simon Price was a well known character in the Royal Navy who was well respected by everyone who knew him. Simon was also a Portsmouth Field Gunner who was renowned for his love of life and for the many practical jokes he played. He was an avid Pompey FC supporter and was instrumental in the founding of the Field Gunners Association.
