The upper markings don't look

The upper markings don't look quite right for Silver Washed and do seem more like Dark Green, but you need to see the underside for ID purposes.

Nice sequence of images David , and Frits are never an easy call , although possible with experience underside helps but sometimes not so obliging in the field

Re; Thank you

The habitat where I was taking some of the butterfly shots was covered in thick bamble. I found it very difficult to get shots of the underwings. I feel so lucky to have seen some of these species, some of which I have not seen for years or not at all such has the Chalkhill Blue.
