    Here is yet another component of the Inter-phone system. The propeller for the generator seen in post #10 can also be seen below as mounted on a DH-4.

    Many thanks! I just picked up one of the props for this system, but was not aware it was for a communication application. Are these props scarce also? I collect WW1 era items and have a few related aircraft items including a Hythe Camera Gun marked to the RFC. I couldn't resist the prop!

    - Best regards! MikeS

    Hi Mike,

    Yes, the props are hard to find, but I have seen three on ebay in the last two years, so they are out there. BTW...if you picked yours up on ebay within the last two months...you probably outbid me......

    BTW,

    Please post a thread relating to your camera, now these are very rare, and I would LOVE to see it!

    Hello Steven -

    Many thanks for the information! I don't believe I outbid you, but may have paid too much, as it was a Buy-It-Now option. However it had two perfect decals and I couldn't resist....

    The Hythe came out of the Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah. Not sure what it was doing there. It is a complete crated set (minus sights which I have repos of) and includes an original training booklet in tissue thin paper.

    Will dig out some photos and post in a bit!

    - Best regards, Mike

    Thanks Steve. Appreciate the check on the price. I was shooting in the dark on the price, but it looked pretty decent. I have another (small) prop segment with a London maker's decal and photo of the original owner, but no idea as to the what, where or who unfortunately.
