The Navy Lark Collection is scheduled for release in September priced ?22.50.

The only details I've got are from the Amazon synopsis:

"Classic episodes of nautical mayhem on board HMS Troutbridge. One of radio's longest-running comic shows, "The Navy Lark" was broadcast between 1959 and 1977."

- so it seems likely that it'll be a selected highlights from the current 14 volumes in a 3 or 4 tape pack

When I find out more I'll put it up here

Site more or less fininshed now - just the episode summaries, which I'll have finished eventually :)
