In that post I wrote that the average for the 14 financial years ending 31st March 1936 was £56,003,476 which with an increase of 10-15% is an average of £5,600,000 to £8,400,000 extra per annum.
However, I didn't say that the average for the 3 financial years starting on 1s April 1936 and ending on 31st March 1939 was £102,995,340 which with an increase of 10-15% is an average of £10,500,000 to 15,500,000 extra per annum when rounded to the nearest half million.
And I didn't say that the estimated expenditure for the financial year ending 31st March 1940 was £149,399,000 which with an increase of 10-15% £15,000,000 to £22,500,000 extra when rounded to the nearest half million.
To put that into perspective this is from a Cabinet Paper from October 1937 called "Defence Expenditure in Future Years"
which I downloaded from the National Archives. The file reference is CAB.024.272 (0003).
