I have a vintage propellor with the folowing details stamped on it -
Y 503 RH; D2743; P2655; 130HP Clefge; Le Rhone and onthe blade 701 N31.
This item was handed down to me by my father who purchased it at auction sometime in the mid to late forties. Could someone please give me an idea of what sort of plane this came from?

It was designed for use on an AVRO 504, models A through K using either the 110 HP LeRhone engine or the 130 HP Clerget engine. The "Y" prefix in the drawing number indicates that it was manufactured by A. V. Roe, Ltd.
