The RNRS lineage makes more sense to me, based on timeline and prior work, but I have no way of proving which is real.

Reaching out to Cocker and Dickson has resulted no feedback for me, except on Facebook, where I am told they prefer some local site over HMF :[ I tried to argue, but it was futile. Maybe someone more diplomatic and persuasive could try. It is not a strength of mine.

Same rose as 'Adagio' (Cocker, not the florist rose, where the Cocker 'Adagio' is posted as the florist rose).

I would describe the color as dark raspberry pink, with a hint of coral in the inner petal. The petal eye zone has a small purple eye, and as the blooms age, a little bit of purple can be seen near the middle of the petals. The blooms are very shiny, and reflect light easily.

This rose was found in the garden of a derelict cottage, which also had Aglaia, Lady Hillingdon, Dorothy Perkins, Ophelia, William Lobb, John Hopper and an invasive suckering gallica - not flowering at the time, but Charles de Mills is a common survivor in the Adelaide Hills. The China was growing about 2m up through a Japonica.
It was in a district which was hit hard by the Ash Wednesday bushfires of 1983; I don't know whether the garden was burnt. It is in a 30" / 750mm rainfall area, subject to El Nino droughts.
The garden and cottage have been replaced in recent years.
