    It is my belief that this was a data plate fitted to the propeller itself not the aircraft. RAF Museum would be a good start for information regarding propellers.

    I think Malcom is right, the two bladed Watts propeller was only fitted to the first, pre war, Spits. It was quickly changed for a three bladed model. You have a very unusual item!
