Thomas ‘Datchy’ Gilham is 18 years old and 5'8" tall, with hazel eyes and brown hair. He has a mole on the front of his neck and another on his right shoulder, with a scar on the outside of his left arm. Unmarried, he has been crewing vessels out of Harwich in Essex and only recently returned to live with his widowed mother in Kent. An illegitimate child with a pronounced stammer, he has grown into a capable man. Bitterly resentful of the past, he smuggles as much to flout the law as to earn money. He comes into the Blues under the pseudonym Dachet Grey, and uses the name Thomas Carpenter.
