Pierre-Michel, mon ami; My brain has been pre-occupied by the shape of this prop which strikes a considerable chord in what is left of my 75 year old brain, and I have much suspected that my original thought that it is of French design for a Hisso is wrong.

I have therefore searched the internet and the books of some fellow called Bob Gardner, whose books I recommend, and have found that it is of French design for a 110hp Le Rhone engine, but also made in Great Britain for the Nieuport Scout by the Lang Propeller Co with the drg number LP3420. Now I can rest easy.

With kind regards,
