Peter Beales states in his "Classic Roses" that the stems of Aglaia are almost thornless (page 263 in the 1997 edition). If so, our foundling (which is also sold incorrectly in Australia as Thisbe) isn't that.

I still think our foundling is 'Aglaia' Margaret. I have downloaded the 1975 reference which says "ripping thorns" and The Old Rose Adventurer page 356 quotes an 1896 reference which says "a small number of short thorns"

Ripping thorns is right!

Could someone who grows this rose confirm that it "blooms in flushes throughout the season"? We have a spring-blooming foundling which appears similar (and is not Goldfinch because it has vicious prickles).

Yes, you're right to question whether this rose repeats. According to Vintage Gardens, it does not.
