DRP?

Post by Jaap Verduijn » Thu May 10, 2018 6:24 am

Greetings all! I recently encountered, somewhere in a Facebook group, a Pickelhaube cover stamped "DRP". The DR would probably be Dragoner Regiment, but what could the P stand for?

DRP on an officer Uberzug stands for Deutsches Reich Patent or something similar.

I agree with Bruno.....that is the meaning which I have used for 30 years. The officer/private purchase uberzug marked DRP is the most common helmet cover found in this hobby.

Or it could be a sound you make when you do something dopey.... "DRP!" Seriously. I have a friend who does that!
