Default Patching 6th Gurkha Rifles Uniform

I was recently given a British Army DPM combat jacket (lightweight version) by an ex-Gurkha. I have also bought the trousers, plus beret and cap badge. I will buy the Union Jack to sew on. However, I'm not sure how to patch it correctly, and can't find much info on the internet. He says he was an officer in the 6th GR, in the 70s.
What rank slides are needed? He says officer ones went on each shoulder, and that they were dark (black?) with three black pips on each.
TRF? As far as I can see, 6th GR had red ones with a crossed kukri.
Collar buttons - possibly crossed kukri with 6 between, and no crown? Or maybe not at all?
Anything else I need?
