Default Armstrong Whitworth Propellor- please help identify

I have recently been given a hansome mahogany wooden propellor by my Grandfather.

The oral history that I have suggests that the aeroplane crashed during it's delivery flight from Scotland to Castle Bromwich, Birmingham, ending up in a field near Fazeley, Tamworth.

The propellor is undamaged, painted in a dark oive drab matt finish. It was found in the attic of a garage in Fazeley with an AJS motorcycle.

Length: 2800mm Hub Inner 77mm Pitch Centre Diameter 105mm for 8 bolt holes. Blade width at widest point 290mm

Side of hub stamped:

Reverse side stamped
G244 N89

The flat rear hub face has numbers stamped around two of the bolt holes
9960 around the topmost hole
480 around the rearmost hole
The letters P3 within a circle are stamped to the outer left of the bolt holes

I have also taken some 35mm shots in detail of these markings, they appear quite fresh and legible. I will post these photos in due course.

I would be grateful for any information identifying this propellor and some idea of it's value.

with thanks

Ed Thompson
