Nurseries in the UK take the position it is a garden selection of Rosa laevigata. Bean's Trees & Shrubs Hardy In the British Isles says it is a cultivar of Rosa laevigata from seed collected in Burma by Roland Cooper and that other seedlings from the same batch of seed are definitely Rosa laevigata.
RNRS "The Rose" Autumn/Winter 2006 says the it is a Hybrid Gigantea, and the ARS classifies it as a Hybrid Gigantea.

The images posted here show only characteristics of Rosa laevigata. Genetic testing will tell the story in time.
