    Jablo Prop Blade Identification?

    A friend has recently come across this Jablo Rotol Propeller blade - obviously in need of a bit of TLC and asked if I could help identify the aircraft type it would have been originally fitted too? Afraid I have drawn a blank so far, as it does not match the drawing number of any of the blades I have had or any I can find online. Does anyone recognise it or have a list of the numbers and applications of these blades - or if I have missed such a resource online, direct me to it please? Drawing No. appears to be "[RA] 10270 / RT". Oh! and its NFS.

    This is a Seafire 47 Contra-prop blade. Note the small bearing diameter.

      Thanks Mark for a definitive answer as always! I think he will be happy with that - Have found a brief synopsis of the Mk 47's career online for him now as well.

          That picture is of a 46 correct?
          Am I correct in assuming the units are the same?

            Correct, They built 24 Mk 46 and 90 Mk 47 Seafires. They also converted a few Mk 21 Spitfires and put them out for service trial and at least one Mk 22 was converted experimentally.
