Hi,

Looking for informations about the evolution of IMO number and previous identification numbers in Lloyd Register, I note that in LR of 1930 to 1940 (site http://www.plimsollshipdata.org/) , every year the ships receive a new and very different 'number in book'.

Hereunder, the 'n° in book' of each first ship of the LRs :

- LR 1930-31 : n°63001 (the last ship is n°83333)

- LR 1931-32 : n°13001

- LR 1932-33 : n°56401

- LR 1933-34 : n°20201

- LR 1934-35 : n°70701

- LR 1935-36 : n°19601

- LR 1936-37 : n°69801

- LR 1937-38 : n°19501

- LR 1938-39 : n°69001

- LR 1939-40 : n°19001

Please, does someone know the reason (and link) of so various first number each year : for example n°13001 in 1931, n°56401 in 1932 ?

I thank you for your attention.

Regards, Yvon.
