A relationship between the defect on a timelike bone and the defect induced on the image of that bone in one leaf of a simplicial spacetime is obtained by applying a form of the Gauss-Codacci equation to that spacetime. A simple example is studied in detail and is used to verify the principal result of this paper. A tentative '3+1' formulation is also presented. This paper follows on directly from a previous paper.
