Dear WelshAde,

AID stands for Aircraft Inspection Department, which identifies the prop as British. The squares around AID confirm that it is from WW1. Eight feet diameter, 2440mm, was almost only used on the DH2 and FE8 but with LH rotation engines not RH as on yours.

E-mail me photographs of the markings on the hub. I particualrly need the engine type or the drg no which is likely to begin with T, LP or AB, probably on the other side of the hub to the G and N numbers which are spurious in this context.

To find my e-mail address, go to my website below where it is prominent. Sorry to be obscure, but I get enough spam as it is.

With regards,

Bob
