Bill is a chimpanzee who seems to be a ship's mascot.
Bill is the chimpanzee pet on board a ship. C/U of the young chimp wearing a jumper. He sits at a table and holds out a bowl of food - he is very cute.
A joke is made about the chimp being bandy. He runs along on deck holding a metal washing tub on his head. The chimp holds a mop and tries to make a salute. Quite funny! He strikes some funny poses. There is snow on deck of ship - looks freezing. Bit cruel really.
