Wasp sp but probably not Common Wasp

Observation - Wasp sp but probably not Common Wasp - UK and Ireland. Description: A typical looking Vespula wasp but with apparently more black in the body that I'd ever noted before or since. I compared this with my trustly old copy of Chinery but I'm still stumped, that said I don't think it is a Common Wasp
