The Navy Lark, one of radio's longest running laughter-makers, kept the nation on the crest of a wave from 1959 to 1977. All at sea in the Senior Service were conniving Chief Petty Officer Jon Pertwee, silly-ass Sub-Lieutenant Leslie Phillips, and the constantly bemused Stephen Murrayas "Number One". Tenniel Evans made mischief as Leading Seaman Goldstein,and Ronnie Barker played Able Seaman Fatso Johnson and Engineer Queeg, a man permanently out of his depth. Jump on deck and join them once again in these classic capers, as the crew return towing a flotilla; the Fleet abandons Troutbridge; Pertwee borrows the ship's silver tea service; and Phillips reminisces about his youth.
