I don't believe it's decades as 15 years is quiet recent thing. When I left in 1994 I was not able to vote as a non resident in any elections.
I'm pretty sure it was 1985/6 that the UK enabled UK expats to register with their local embassies so that they could vote "back home".

Thatcher was still PM back then and the general feeling was that expats would vote Tory, hence the change of heart on the issue.
