I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

Sorry for the unhappy subject.

Does anyone recall if this was a common tradition in the 1960s and earlier? I understand it may originate in the RN, but I am not sure if this would have been the case in the RAF in 1966?
Not that I recall, but then we managed to be away each time a 9 Sqn Vulcan crashed.
