Any maker's name stamped into it or decals? Not knowing who made it makes ID'ing it almost impossible.

Referring to the list here: http://www.woodenpropeller.com/Britishprops.htm there are many listings for DH 5220 prop but I found none for the SC suffix. Perhaps someone else on this Forum will have an answer.

The L.L. may refer to "Laidlaw Lumber"? I think they made a number of Canadian propellers during and after WW1.
