Household Cavalry Walt?

Looks like full dress for one of the Line Cav Regiments. The collar badge & primrose stripe suggest RDG, but I'm sure in the days of the Skins we didn't allow ugly wives...
The sword's a 1908 Pattern too, not the H Cav sword. No 'flask cord" on the pouch belt. So many things wrong with that rig.

And that's deffo not a "bird"... :)
My guess (and it is only that) is Yeoman Cav. No self respecting regular would look that shit. I am ruling out fancy dress beacuse the medals look genuine and I just dont want to believe anyone would put their real medals on a fake uniform. I belive the bird to be real only because it is serious commitment to fancy dress for a bloke to have a "ladylike" tattoo done on his thigh!
I wouldn't even say the helmet is HCav. Only the gauntlets and the possibly the buff belt.
This does seem a very similar outfit to what Baron Von Castleshort was wearing in one of his photos - but I can't find that one.
