Any ideas on which crinum this might be?

Is the coloration of the pink/purple striping as well delineated inside bulb (& if so, how far into interior does it go?) as on outside?

What do you mean by inside the bulb? Are you referring to the underground structure of the plant?

I took a bloom apart so I could take a photo of the interior of the petals.

It looks like a small flower Dave? Crinum 'H.J. Elwes' looks much like this, are the leaves broad?

The flower is not large but it's not small. About the same size bloom as on Ellen Bosanquet. Comparing the photos online of ';HJ Elwes' I don't think that's what I have.

It looks like an old hybrid called Maiden's Blush. The coloration is very light pink, and in many pictures seems to be almost white.
