Simon,
I think it's too short to have been used as is on any conventional airplane. On the other hand, the hub looks large and consistent with some kind of aviation hub, so it's possible that it was damaged and the ends trimmed symetrically, which was fairly common. When you get it, look closely at the ends then look at this diagram to get a sense of how the thickness varied along the length of the blade.

Most WW1 British propellers had much more information stamped on the hub, usually leading to accurate identification.
