Bosun Bill character jug produced by Elischer of Melbourne, Australia, circa 1950. Bosun Bill is a song by Sea of Thieves, the lyrics of which begin: "Bosun Bill was known throughout the port, a truly dreadful pirate who was always getting caught, not one scheme for stealing could he hatch. 'Cause someone would spot, the treasure he'd got, and Bill they'd snatch! One day Bill awoke lying on a distant beach, the last of his grog was just out of reach. He groped around with trembling hands, and struck something in the sand. He'd stumbled upon a part of an ancient chart. Stained and torn, the old map told, the way to find a buried stash of gold." This is an advertising jug produced for Beenleigh Rum.
