5.0 out of 5 stars Wholesome, good old fashioned comedy 16 May 2001
Format:Audio Cassette
Having grown up addicted to TV, I never realised that my imagination could do so much until I listened to The Navy Lark. The characters are so real and hilariously funny - I think even the dog laughed!!. Sitting at home one sunny Sunday afternoon listening to the ''radio'' transported me back to another time and place. I recommend this audio cassetee to anyone who likes good old fashioned British humour. Excellent value for money and gives your imagination a real workout. If you want to clear the cobwebs-buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Other motorists thought that I must be mad... 2 April 2001
By William
Format:Audio Cassette
...I was laughing so hard - damn nearly howling, to be perfectly frank. Never, ever, play any of the 'Navy Lark' cassettes in your car unless you want to look like a complete gibbering imbecile, or a stark raving nutter. Even were it possible to explain the humour to Americans in the Middle West, they still wouldn't understand what all the noise was about. Such was my experience, the first time I listened to a 'Navy Lark' set: 'Troutbridge', in this case. It caught my interest because of Jon Pertwee's involvement - it kept my interest because it was simply marvellous.
These comic gems, originally broadcast more than a decade before I was born, stand the test of time far better than one might expect. It is a tribute to the actors involved, and to the writing of Lawrie Wyman, that these are as good as they are. 'Troutbridge Goes Dutch', in which HMS Troutbridge accidentally captures a German submarine fifteen years after the end of the war, is brilliant. In another story, Jon Pertwee's Chief Petty Officer is selling off mulitple duplicates of the - non-existent - figurehead from HMS Victory, lovingly carved by Ronnie Barker. Leslie Phillips does his usual star turn as the bird-brained Lieutennant, and Stephen Murray is as firm as the rock of Gibraltar.
For heaven's sake, don't just buy this cassette to have a bit of a laugh and then toss in the bin. This is light entertainment, certainly. Sometimes, however, that's the very best, isnt' it? Buy it for a lark, if you will, and laugh again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seagoing shenanigins of the highest order! 8 Mar 2001
Format:Audio Cassette
The Navy Lark always manages to raise a smile! Unlike its modern counterparts, it is pure, honest and simple character based comedy. This tape features four fab episodes, listen to the trials and tribulations as they approach Clodwilly Rock Lighthouse, and my favourite characters of all, the ever sick "Lad" and his cheif engineer. Jon Pertwee and Leslie Phillips are seriously silly and never fail to produce laughs. Buy it, enjoy it and laugh.

From start to finish you cannot help giggling all the way through. It certainly shows the Navy in a different light. You can easily understand how these actors went on to become household names and old favourites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Navy Lark, Taking Some Liberties, v 17 6 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is very funny indeed. Good humour without obscenity is so rare currently and makes The Navy Lark refreshing to listen to. The actors play off one another with consumate ease so the sketches are slick. Their timimg is absolutely accurate. We have really enjoyed listening to the CD and will probably try to build a little library. Well worth listening to, laughter guaranteed.
