For many, a chuff chart is a tool that gives it’s users some form of optimism, hope and aspiration.

For others – it’s something they haven’t heard of.

What Is A Chuff Chart?

A chuff chart is a useful tool used by military personnel that highlights the exact time you have left at a certain posting, tour or exercise.

You simply select the start date and an end date and the chuff chart calculates how many hours, days, weeks, months or years between the two.

As a result, you’re left with a good idea of a few things like how long you have left on tour, how many LSA days you have or how much leave you will accumulate whilst on tour.

This is by all accounts a very basic version of a chuff chart and more intricate charts are available.

Can I Make A Chuff Chart On Excel?

In the days before online GYH calculators or home to duty calculators, we used to make them up on Excel and share within the section.

They’re dead easy to create and you only need to know the basics of Excel to accomplish your very own chuff chart.

Just make sure to include start dates, end dates, current LSA days and any other data you want to measure.

Your unit will most probably have a chuff chart already saved on their computers so make sure to ask your chain of command.
