Red face looking for an id on my granpas propellor

Hi clever people..I have an 8ft wooden ww2 prop left by my Grandad who isnt here to tell me its story..It looks like mahogony/rosewood with brass on the side with lots of rivetts.No markings that I can see. It has 4 holes at the base with lines along it..sorry its not much. Im searching as Id like to make plans to donate it to the right people, on my passing..any ideas?

It's very unlikely (and, frankly, probably impossible) that you can identify it without stamped identification data.

This is a prop cut in half is it not? Is the half 8 ft or is the half 4 ft? I can't tell for certain by the picture.
