Queen Wasp found 31/3/12: is it a German or Cuckoo?

DSCF1442.JPGDSCF1437.JPGThe pictures show a queen wasp found in the kitchen (in Herefordshire) and chilled in the fridge in an old humous pot for a couple of minutes enable photography, before release outside.  I suspect it to be the German wasp (Vespula germanica) but am not confident enough to rule out a cuckoo wasp (Vespula austriaca).  Please can somebody confirm an identification?
