There is no available history on this propeller, however, given that the merchant's business history. It could be feasible to see that this propeller was from "salvage".
The Merchant "Macsalvors"
The Scotsmen (both "Macs") incorporated their trade (Salvors) into a new venture in 1957 and created Macsalvors. The company's early work was buying and selling Ministry of Defence surplus, dismantling and demolition work.

In 1947 the Queen Elizabeth Class Warship H.M.S. Warspite sank off Prussia cove in Cornwall. Two Scotsman (With some assistance) Refloated the ship and beached her along the coast at St. Michael's Mount. It remains the largest salvage operation ever carried out in British waters a piece of the Warspite can be viewed at Macsalvors.

In 1962 they launched a plant hire business bringing a new crane hire service to the South West. Many important engineering feats would not have been completed without their services. The many projects that have been aided by Macsalvors include: The Earth Satellite Station at Goonhilly, The Power Station at Indian Queens, The widening of the Tamar Bridge and The World Famous Eden Project.
