Hi Simon,

The prop certainly looks very much like a cut down British WW1 prop. The hub has a British look and eighteen inches added to each blade would give an eight foot diameter, which would be the correct length.

As Dave Bahnson says, these props were often cut down, either because of damage to the tips or somtimes just to carry them home from the war!

When you get it home study the sides of the hub and the front and back of the hub carefully for any lettering or traces of lettering. Also take some detailed photos and post them here and we might be able to identify it.

Buying it for thirty quid was a bargain.

With regards,

Bob Gardner
