The data translates as;
D2971 The diameter of the prop in mm
P3170 The pitch of the propeller in mm
140hp RAF The 140hp engine designed and made by the Royal Aircraft Factory (hence RAF)

The key information is the drawing number, which you haven't mentioned, which is almost certainly T6296, where the designator letter T indicates the Royal Aircraft Factory.

With kind regards,

Hi Bob,
Please let me know how I can sign up for a copy of your British propeller database on CD, and the cost.
I have a DH4 4-blade prop DRG2442, for a RAF 3A engine, batch G299 (or 289),
Could you tell me a little more about it?
Many thanks
Mike L, Urchfont.
