Opening remarks[edit | edit source]

If you happen to know Chief Petty Officer Pertwee your birthday becomes a day of sheer terror and suspense in case he's bought you something which will show him an enormous profit and you a devastating loss. Well last year I was lucky, He gave me a pawn ticket for a watch that turned out to be mine when I redeemed it. Today it's Able Seaman Johnson's birthday and he's locked himself in the stores aboard Troutbridge. Won't do any good, Pertwee'll get him!

Overview[edit | edit source]

It's Johnson's birthday, but the birthday boy has locked himself in a storeroom, and is refusing to come out, even when CPO Pertwee reveals he has a present for him

  • 'I've only just finished paying the installments on the present you got me last year!'

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The audience for this recording included crew members of Her Majesty's Frigate Troubridge.
