If you look closely at the |r|s, they are all slightly different. This appears to be lettering, not a typeface.

Agreed the bowl's of the 'd' are different as well as the 'o's. I still reckon it could be the work of Arthur Baker, he was an excellent calligrapher. Beautiful work though by an obvious master.
