Default Civil Defence helmet I.D

I just purchased a WWII British Civil Defence helmet at the local car boot sale. Black helmet with the letters RP/E hand painted to the front. Can anyone tell me what it stands for please?

...and then, once you've got the plain black ones for Electricity, Water, Road, Gas and Sewage you start to climb the Rank steps and get the white ones of each...and then white with one stripe (or one diamond)...then 2 stripes (or 2 diamonds)....and then the rare 2" stripe or even the 3 diamond ones....so I estimate you've got another 39 to go before you've got the "Repair Party" family sorted :-)

Good luck!!!!
