Default Inherited propeller

I have recently inherited a WW1 propeller. This was my great grandfathers who was stationed with the RFC in Mesopotamia Around 1916. It is 4 bladed, brass tipped. The drawing number is t7928, which some internet research tells me comes from a fe8 or dh2. The photos my great grandfather left behind of his plane and time in mesopotamia and India are definitely not from a dh2 or fe8, the propeller is front mounting and looks to be a be2 (I think, certainly no expert!) I am curious as to how my great grandfather would have come in possession of this, were these given out as mementos after the war? If so, why from an earlier model? Also would someone kindly confirm that I correctly identified it?
Thanks! Andreas
