British budget & army strength 1692-1698

A friend of mine found a great site with British budget spending details since 1692 (link). It gives some very interesting facts about British expenses during the war of Augsburg League.

British budget (expenses) grow from 4,3 in 1692 to 8 mln. pounds in 1698.

The expenses were funded by debts. National debt grow from 3,3 in 1692 to 17,3 mln. pounds in 1698

About 40% of overall expenses were landed forces costs

But annual figures in some years don't directly correspond with landed forces strength.
