Ukraine badge

Just spotted this interesting badge in the 'Daily Telegraph' worn by what appears to be a colonel in the Coldstream Guards, judging from his pips. The RM colonel is wearing SBS para wings.

QRH TRF?

Is the TRF with the cipher on it something to do with the Queen's Royal Hussars?

I've already managed to identify the others.
