Simon was detonated in early 1953, not 1954
Here’s an album with more pictures from the tests

This one in particular just goes to show how unaware the soldiers were of the effects the radiation would have on them
Ah..the old anti-radioactive trench. Why not just stand them up outside the trench and tell them that the warm atomic breeze will purify their skin?
Did those soldiers get sick? They had to have right?
