Lt. Commander Prideaux, W.A.  Rose Shows of Today and Twenty Years Ago. 
Another outstanding rose which has every attribute a good rose should have, colour, form, perfume, was Felicity. I imported this rose from Harry Kemp's Unley Nursery, S.A., and wore a bloom of it at our annual executive dinner.  It immediately attracted the attention of Mr. Alister Clark who was most complimentary about its beauty and begged me let him have it for his button hole for the dinner. Law Somner's manager asked for some blooms which he photographed and used for the frontispiece of their annual catalogue.
