Noble Friends, especially Vikings and Fellow Scots,

As promised below is a link to the BBC's coverage of Tuesday night's
Up-Helly-Aa festival in Lerwick. It is sadly, rather brief, but there are
some nice scenes here. For the first time women were officially allowed
into the Lerwick Jarl Squads. The four young ladies joined the Chief
Guizer's squad in costume. [Festivals in some other towns have included
women for several years.]

Here is the clip:

Yours Aye,
