Orange Underwing?

The upper wings on the attached poor quality photos do not appear to be at all well marked as sjhown in the fiedl guides - hence my uncertainty as to the ID.

From what i understand the dark markings on the edge of the upper wing near the back are diagnostic for Large Yellow Underwing? They otherwise seem quite variable, i had one the other day that was very dark and the underwings were verging on reddish!
