Can anyone identify this flying insect??

I found this insect in my garden dead and can't seem to see it in any of my insect books. Can anyone help identify it please? It is about 3 cm long and a wing span of about 7cm 006.jpg

    Rosie,

     

    I am fairly sure it is a hawk moth.

    It doesn't look much like one because it has lost all its scales.

    ...And without the scales (or a scale to indicate its size), it would be difficult to say which species it is.
