A Beautiful Thing

This beautiful prop on the 100 year old Sopwith Camel is unlikely to be the original but I am trying to find out more about its origin.
The Sopwith Camel was built in UK and had a max speed of 185kph and a range of 500km. It could fly to a height 6300 meters. No oxygen and very basic protection in an open cockpit must have been a really cold and memorable experience. Not to mention possibly being shot at during the experience.
