They made the two bladed propellers for the first Hurricanes and Spitfires, which during the course of WW II graduated to 3 and 4 bladed higher performance propellers made by ROTOL an alliance between Rolls Royce and Bristol aero companies.

    A rare Handley Page HP 1930's two bladed aircraft propeller. Two of these very large laminated mahogany propellers were fitted on each of the four Bristol Jupiter XIF radial engines of this early Imperial Airways Airliner which carried 24 passengers and 4 crew in 500 mile hops cruising at 100mph. Initially these four classically named behemoths reached in up to 28 stages destinations as far as Karachi in then India. Later based in Cairo they were to provide the ultimate long distance connection to South Africa and eventually to Australia. From a private collection of early aeroplane propellers.
    English 1930's.

    With the names Hanno, Hannibal, Hadrian and Horsa there were four of these rather impressive clippers of the skies on Imperial Airways', later B.O.A.C., intercontinental run. They, their crews and ground staff were pioneers using what now is seen as elementary Boy's Own technology but whose personnel, installations and expertise were used to great advantage when war came in the 1940's and a flood of military aircraft were ferried from the Canadian and American factories over the Caribean and South America to the North African, Far and Near East theaters of the war.

    A historic World War I De Havilland two blade mahogany, ash and walnut propeller. The eight stud fitting holes indicate that this propeller would have been fitted to a De Havilland Gnome 14 cylinder, 100hp two row radial rotary engine which powered the BS, later designated the SE2, single engine World War 1 scout/fighter designed and first flown by a young Geoffrey De Havilland around 1913. It was the first aeroplane in the world specifically designed as a fast single seat scout and as Bleriot was said to have originated the tractor biplane, was known as the Bleriot Scout, or B.S.1. It was manufactured at the Royal Aircraft Factory at Farnborough, England. From a private collection of early aeroplane propellers.
    English early 20th century.

    Notes: The wooden, circular section monococque fuselage was a masterpiece of the cabinet maker's art and years ahead of its time. It merged smoothly into the lines of the closely cowled engine to give the B.S.1 a very good streamlined shape. Lateral control was by warping the single bay wings and the tail unit featured a diminutive rudder, without fixed fin, mounted above a one-piece tailplane and elevator. For its day the B.S.1 was very fast and in March 1913 its designer, now Lt. de Havilland, Special Reserve, was timed over the speed course at 91.4 m.p.h. Unfortunately the rudder was far too small for the considerable keel surface of the deep front fuselage and directional control was poor. Consequently, later on the day of the speed trials, it went out of control in a turn and de Havilland was injured as it struck the ground in a flat spin.
