Hi Jorri,

The French shieldings during WW1 were not that different of those of your prop: on the attached picture are four French prop from WW1:

From left to right, a Chauvière (made between 1916 and 1918), a Gallia (made in 1918 or 1919), a Ratier (made in 1916) and a Régy (made between 1915 and 1917). The Chauvière shielding is made from 3 pieces and two halves, all the others made of two halves.

It seem to me there is a kind of airworthy stamp on your prop (in the blue rectangle):

Did you see it (kind of bird)? Or perhaps my eyes are kidding me?
