exceptions and http referer

I have a site with a lot of jsp pages. For example:
http://www.mysite.gr/page1.jsp
http://www.mysite.gr/page2.jsp
http://www.mysite.gr/errorpage.jsp

The errorpage.jsp is the error page that is loaded when an exception occurs.

Question: At the error page, is it possible to pass to a string variable the http referer, from the page that causes the exception?

For example, if page1.jsp has an exception

in the error.jsp page I want to have a string variable with value "http://www.mysite.gr/page1.jsp"

Thanks in advance!
