Bioacoustics and military history

From the front matter of Ultrasonic Communication by animals [1]. The Royal Air Force 360 Squadron used the moth Melese laodamia​ (Druce, 1884) as part of their squadron badge. The squadron focussed on counter measures to electromagnetic radar, analogous to the moths defenses against the bioacoustic sonar of bats.
