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 Mysterious Radio Signals, Operation Recovery, The Slogan Contest, and Sir Willoughby at Shanghai.

Don't miss any of the episodes of The Navy Lark.

Laughed all the Voyage

I love the Navy Lark and these four episodes I had not heard before. They were hysterical, some of the ideas are a little dated but that doesn't affect the whole story. Well worth a credit
