|Lot’s of people used to chart the days until they got on the big goes-ome bird, especially those overseas where posting were much longer than they are today.|
I never had one, largely because I was happy where I was and didn’t particularly want to go! Some charts were very elaborate affairs, like advent calenders, others were quite simple.
I had opted for five years initial engagement, and I do recall though there were people who had signed on for the full 22/24 or whatever it was. I eventually did 25 myself, but in a series of engagements. I can recall looking in awe at a fellow 20-year-old in 1960 who wouldn’t reach the end of his engagement till 1984! !984 was a bit beyond my comprehension!
