SMLE Unit disk help needed

Article about: I've recently put down money on SMLE No1 Mk III, L.S.A 1916 and need help identifying the unit markings on the ID Disk. "ED 159" Google has been no help, though I found this handy

    A thought occurs, maybe it's an inventory number, ED standing for Enfield, 159 being the rifle inventory number?
    The usual abbreviation for Enfield is EFD and as this is a LSA (London Small Arms) rifle I doubt it. LSA were one of the smallest producers and are quite scarce. They continued to make the MkIII when the others changed to the MkIII* in 1915/16.

    I have heard of people referring to any .303 service rifle as an Enfield, be it one or not, which is why I thought that might be the case.
