Dear folks,

Can you help me with more details about this wooden propeller? see attached picture. The only information I have is mentionned on the propeller: Viking Falcon Rolls Royce D2514 P2590" Do somebody know which airplanes use this type of wooden propeller? is this a propeller of the First World War?

Thanks

Yes.
When you google rolls-royce falcon one of the airplanes it's used on is a vickers viking. Because there is viking on the hub it's almost certainly for such a plane.
It's also a pusher prop.
