Rose ID

This rose was supposed to be Duke of Edinburgh (small red HP). I got it from Ashdown's closing sale. It wants to throw long canes, but not rebloom. I don't think I care for it, but if I knew what it was i could perhaps see some future potential.

This first picture shows the true color well:

Looks like it might be a wichurana rambler or close relative. I'm guessing on the basis of glossy leaves of 7, hooked thorns, long canes, cluster blooming.

Thanks for a clue Michael - I searched HMF for pink wichuranas and hybrid multifloras and the only one that looks anything like mine is "Dawson". (Only some of the pics as others must be a completely different rose). What seems a bit unique about this rose as you can see in the first photo is its high-centered bud. It opens flat though in a rather garish shade of pink.
