Spitfire Prop. ?

Living History

When I was a youngster my father always told me that this is the tip of a Spitfire prop airscrew.

It is 185mm (7 1/4″) high, 148MM (5 3/4″) wide at the base and 9mm (3/4″) at it’s thickest point on he base; Material appears to be aluminium.

Dad was a civilian aircraft worker at Hawker (1936 -39) [Hart; Hind; Huricane], Vickers (1940)[Wellington] where he was injured in an air raid, and an un-named shaddow factory at a garage in Reading (1940/41)[Spitfire]

In 1941 he joined the RAF becoming Leading aircraftman – Fitter 2A (basically a sheet metal worker) and served at a number of units in the UK untill discharged in 1944 as ” Physically unfit for Air Force Service, although fit for selected service in civil life”

He has never said that he actually made this.

Can anyone comment on whether it is in fact from a Spitfire.
