Propeller Tip Souvenir from 41 Fighter Reconnaissance Wing Hawarden

We were told when we purchased this item that it was recovered from a Gladiator propeller. On close inspection we noticed scratched into the propeller is 41 OTU 7.03.45 Hawarden, Chester. It would appear therefore this tip was recovered from a crash at Hawarden on this date. If any visitors can provide further information, we would be happy to add details to our listing. In late 1944 41 OTU was operating Hurricanes, Spitfires, Harvard, Martinet, Proctor and Dominie aircraft. 6.5" (17cm)
