SIR – When my mother was living near Bangor, North Wales during the war, she was told that, after the local bee man died and they were holding his funeral in the church, a swarm of bees came in, flew in a circle over his coffin, then went out (Letters, September 17).
History does not relate if they had been told of his death, but they knew. Mary Biggs
