Caterpillar for ID

Can't find this in my rather limited number of caterpillar illustrations.

About 5 - 6 cms long at a guess. Damp area with tall grasses, reeds, thistles, nettles, etc. :

Thanks, Harry,

The only book that I have with moths in (the old Readers Digest butterfly book) only has Drinker as a small addition on the 'Lappet' page with no caterpillar illustration to go by!
