Original WW1, royal flying corps aircraft generator propeller.

This small wooden propeller would have been fitted to a wind driven generator, fixed to the forward inner wing strut of the aircraft. It is approximately 17" in length made from laminated strips of mahogony. The central hub is fitted with a brass collar, to give a secure fitting to the generator. Around the hub it is stamped with various serial numbers and '500 watt' which refers to the size of the generator.

In an excellent condition with a great patina, with some age crazing to the varnish covering.
