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. So climb aboard and join the merry crew in these four classic capers: The Lighthouse Lark, A Deliberate Bashing, Let Loose with a Chopper, and Mr Phillips' Promotion.

Long live the Navy Lark!

As a transplanted Brit now living in San Diego I was very pleased to see Audible now carrrying some of the best in old British Comedy. I grew up with the Navy Lark & other excellant BBC comedy radio programmes. Having re-discovered them I can say that they have not lost any of their apeal & still make my wife & I have a good chuckle. Listening to the late Jon Pertwee's vocal talents alone is worth the money! (He was a Dr Who as well). Lesley Phillips as the original British naval twit just adds to the fun. Thanks Audible!!
