    First impression is a Jablo blade possibly from a Spitfire, missing it's 'skin'. Hopefully someone can identify it from the numbers.

    If you look closely it actually reads RA5812, which is a Rotol part number of a hub adaptor. DRG is short for drawing number, from which the part was manufactured. Unfortunately, that part number was used on a variety of types, including Hurricanes, Halifaxes etc, so can't be narrowed down from that alone. Can you find any more numbers on the blade butt anywhere?

    Be patient - not all of the more knowledgeable members are on the forum all the time, and it's also still in the summer holiday period. If this was found in Portugal, my guess would be that it's possibly from a Hurricane.

    Well put Terry.
    Without checking the net yet, I would agree with earlier comments - certainly resembles a Hurricane or Halifax prop. Will have a look on 'Uncle Google' later when I get time.
