It is my belief that this could be made up BD blouse.
First, Why RED wings when the RE wore normal colour wings? These look to be either Kings Royal Rifles (I think that is right) or 2nd KEO Gurkha Rifles but they wore a smaller version of the wing.
Second, The stable belt buckle is a modern unit, 24 Infantry Brigade.
Third, The BD badge on the right arm, again is a modern RE badge that looks to have been aged.

I have no comment on the Formation patch as I am not up on these.
I may be wrong but......
