    From pg. 312, Skennertonicon's "Lee Enfield Story:"
    "some official figures for .303 rifle production at Lithgowicon list the following by fiscal years:-"
    1922-1923-2,700
    1923-1924-3,320
    1924-1925-3,140
    1925-1926-2,760
    1926-1927-3,000
    1927-1928-3,200
    1928-1929-3,200
    1929-1930-340

    Relatively low numbers between the interwar periods.
