The pilot was landing at a grass strip in fine weather conditions. The landing was entirely normal until after about 40 or 50 m of ground roll the single main landing gear collapsed, causing damage to the propeller when it struck the ground. On inspection, it was apparent that the main landing gear had become unlocked. The precise reason for this had not been determined at the time of reporting, but the pilot suspected that age and wear of landing gear components may have been factors.
