Named by the VUWAE, 1958-59, after the Valkyries of Norse mythology. The Valkyries were warlike maidens mounted on horses and armed with helmets and spears. Odin sent them down to every battlefield as “choosers of the slain”. When they rode forth on their errand the armour shed a strange flickering light, flashing over the Northern skies – the Aurora Borealis.
