    It's not an Anson - wrong prop + engine does not look right proportions for a Cheetah - Yes late Ansons had a variable pitch prop but with wooden blades not metal - the earlier metal ones were one-piece fixed pitch - this looks possibly American to me and 1930s? but not anything I'm familiar with.
    Im with NickW on this one spent the a bit of time looking at restored Anson ening and prop in NZ completed right down to war time specifications, there's something very off about this prop off Magie.
    I think there was a B26 that ditch off Magnetic during the war but then this would be a 3 blade prop. like the report said almost 216 ditching s or crashes of the coast...........take your pick
