Default Can anyone help Identify my prop, could it be Blackburn Shark ?

Can anyone be so good to help me identify my propellor ? its 12'3" in length laminated, covered with a doped cloth and a metal protected leading edge. Im leaning towards a Blackburn Shark its dated November 1936 Im guessing the "Tiger"could be the Armstrong Siddeley Tiger.
I've attached three images hope they are clear to see.

Thanks in advance Miles.

I would have said that you have hit the nail on the head; the British design numbers page (linked to from this forum) lists Z.2373/2 as being for Blackburn Shark II with Armstrong Siddeley Tiger VI engine.

Nice prop, by the way!

This list, submitted by Bob Gardner some time ago.

I've moved this to the "modern" category.
