Default My Great Grandfather's Propeller

Good morning from London,

I have recently come into possession of a propeller that my Great Grand Father (William Gibbs) was given in WWI. The family story, though hazy, is that he crashed his plane in 1917 and was given it as a souvenir.

He was a Sopwith Camel pilot, though this doesn't appear to be from one.

I'm assuming the JN4 is the key?

Serial:
AD 543 RH
90 HP CURTISS
OX2 JN4
D2520 P1580

Lucraft & Westcott Ltd (London)

I'm hoping you might be able to help me in confirming the plane model.

Secondly, if anyone has any advice on how I might be able to research the 'crash'? Would it be on record?

Best,

James
