Hello Bob, Please allow me to correct an error in a previous text. I managed to track down my elderly friend and he advises me that his Great Uncle payed Ten Shillings for the prop. Also I have obtained the data pertaining to Patent No.12466.12, ie. the text and the drawings and will be contacting a fellow maintenance engineer who is an expert in props to explain it all to me.I feel that the search is over and I sincerely thank you and Dave for your help in tracking down what data is available about the prop. I look forward to purchasing your revised prop book in about September,2008.
Kindest regards, Grazza.

Thanks Grazza. If possible, can you send me photos of the text and plans of the patent. Or better still tell me how to get my own copy? I have managed to obtain copies of German patents; that's quite easy! but I found myself going round in circles trying to see a copy of your patent.

Bob, Is it unusual for Levasseur designed props to have both the Helice-Levasseur decal/stamping and the Vickers-Levasseur decal on them or was this the usual practice at the time of manufacture ?.
