    Propellor identity at Norfolk Pub

    This prop is displayed in the car park of the White Horse, Brancaster, Norfolk.
    Is there a known history for the prop?
    the pub is situated on the coast adjoins the marshes. Is there a link?
    any info would be appreciated.

      A quick trip to Googleland gives us a photo of a De Havilland/Hamilton Standard, Counterbalanced, Bracket Type Prop. Don't know anything about it.

        You can just make out the bevels in the reduction gear so it's probably from a Bristol radial engined aircraft.

          Is it a paddle blade?

            I agree that the Farman reduction gears make it a Bristol radial engine (and the perpendicular bevel gears make it a 0.5:1 reduction ratio).

            The propeller type would make it most likely a Pegasus or Mercury engine.

                Could it be this one, or from the other engine, appropriate to the location:

                  Doubt it as it's a bracket-type. Not sure there were any?

                  It's all good. Probably.
