Default Possible RE.8 prop.

This came from the family of a flier who has RE.8s, DH.4s, DH.9s, and FK.8s in his logbook, if that helps any.

I'd be very grateful for any help on this. Note that the prop is lying such that it's twisted somewhat towards the bottom of the picture. It's the broad tip and narrow root that make me think RE.8, or at least a 4-blader.

It's quite a thin and elegant blade and therefore not built to transmit lots of power which certainly rules out the DH4 and DH9. It is likely to be from a four bladed prop; possibly from a BE2. It's from a tractor rather than a pusher; nor is it from a seaplane.

With regards,
