Just getting into WW1

As the title says.

From a personal level I would like to portray a member of the 23rd Royal Welch Fusiliers 1916/17. However, I have a beard that I dont want to get rid off :). What are the regs.? Do I have to represent a Pioneer? If so any special kit/uniform I need to get?
