All aboard HMS Troutbridge
Classic radio comedy from yesteryear. I'm a big fan of vintage radio comedy. It's great to hear the complete series. Having the whole series in order gives an overarching direction to the antics the crew of HMS Troutbridge get up to. It also helps for plot development even though the episodes can stand alone.
The Navy Lark can be compared to other vintage comedies of the 50s,60s and 70s. It stands tall with other giants like The Goon Show, and Hancock's Half Hour.
The full cast recording features some favourite old school household names. Leslie Phillips, Jon Pertwee and Ronnie Barker. They all bring their amazing comic personas to the show and their ability to flex their vocal characterisations (Jon Pertwee and Ronnie Barker are excellent as Commander Weatherby and Rear Admiral Ironbridge respectively).
They already made a film in 1959 based on the radio show. Only Leslie Phillips appeared in it from the radio cast.
Would love to see more of these complete series available through audible - Hancock's Half Hour, The Goon Show, The Navy Lark, Round the Horn, etc.
Wonderful Vintage Fun
