Nice prop Grovetown.

Is that a decal on the left blade or just a trick of the light?

Metal sheathing on an early British prop indicates either that it was a seaplane or that it was a pusher, like the DH2. The aim was the same in both cases, to protect the blade from FOD thrown up by the wheels or the floats. I suppose it also helped with empty rounds, maps, pencils and the pilot's sandwiches.

This is my DH2 four bladed prop with DMD decals.

With regards,

Bob

Thanks Lamar. Fantastic example Bob. Nice DH1 too Dave.

And yes it's a trick of the light - speck of dust caught in the flash. The prop is without decals.

Best wishes,

Grovetown.
