Default 10th Hussars patrol jacket

I have a small collection of military uniforms, mostly army, and recently acquired a blue patrol jacket. It is clearly older than the Staybrite Signals buttons that are on it now and has the upright collar closed with a single wide 'hook & eye' that I have only seen before on a pre-WW1 greatcoat, so I suspect that this of similar vintage. The white detachable patrol collar has 'XRH' handwritten on it, which is why I think it is 10th Hussars.

I would like to restore it to it's proper configuration, so I am seeking information on the correct buttons and collar dogs for that period. I believe the buttons would be 'ball' type, POW feathers over XRH? Would the cuff buttons also be ball - I have a RHA patrol jacket with ball buttons on the front but domed cuff buttons.

What collar dogs would this have had - there are two piercings on each side, placed vertically - I would expect POW feathers with 10th Hussars scroll below, but what material (bronze, silver, gilt)?

Would this have chain epaulettes?
