The war of the wasps

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN re­sponse to the let­ter from Jenny de Robeck (‘Waspish be­hav­iour’, Oc­to­ber 19), the chil­dren’s book The White Ad­mi­ral by H. E. Bates was pub­lished in 1968. It fea­tures a war be­tween wasps and but­ter­flies, with the lat­ter aided by moths, drag­on­flies and other in­sects—of course, the but­ter­flies won! In con­clu­sion, I can only as­sume that Bates had cer­tainly wit­nessed such an at­tack in real life. Charles Bar­ton, Fyllings­dalen, Nor­way
