Publisher's Summary

The Navy Lark, one of radio's longest running laughter-makers, kept the nation on the crest of a comic wave from 1959 to 1977. All at sea in the Senior Service were conniving Petty Officer Jon Pertwee, silly-ass Sub-Lieutenant Leslie Phillips, and the constantly bemused Stephen Murray as 'Number One'. Below decks Ronnie Barker was just about working his passage as (Un)Able Seaman 'Fatso' Johnson.
Climb aboard and join the merry crew in a high level NATO exercise, a promotion commotion, a spot of naval nepotism, and Hunt Ball complications in these four classic episodes: Mount Rumpus Atoll, Commodore Goldstein, Northampton Hunt Ball, and Cuthbert Joins the Navy.
Don't miss any of the episodes of The Navy Lark.

Brought back memories from the past that I thought were lost forever. I can't wait to the next episode.

Before he was the Doctor.

Would you listen to The Navy Lark, Volume 1 again? Why?

Yes. Because the stories are so funny.

What other book might you compare The Navy Lark, Volume 1 to and why?

I would compare it to Douglas Adams books or Prarie home companion.

Which scene was your favorite?

Any scene with Jon Pertwee.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it is that kind of a book.

Any additional comments?

I loved Jon Pertwee when he was Doctor Who, and I've only seen guest star in couple different other things. But listing him do some many characters, makes me realise what a great voice actor and comedian he was to.
