The man was hired by Carl Denham to an expedition on Singapore (never telling him or anyone they were actually going to Skull Island). He like Venture Crewmember 26 isn't seen much like the other crewmembers, but is briefly seen along with the crew watching Ann Darrow and Jimmy dance much to their enjoyed. He is either clapping or holding out a cup like some of the crew.
His fate is unknown. perhaps he died when they captured Kong in the native village or he may have stay aboard the ship, maintaining it and waiting for the others, and thus survived to tell the tale.
