    I believe this was for a "Watts" R/H tractor propeller as used on the "Merlin II" engine.

    Kind regards, Malcolm.

    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.

    Kind regards, Malcolm.
