Initiation is by the Sword in all instances. The sword in question being Excalibur, the Sword of Britain, held in trust by Arthur the sword bearer. There are, in fact, three separate orders within the Loyal Arthurian Warband, the differences are fairly self explanatory. King Arthur Pendragon is the Titular Head and Chosen Chief of what has become known as the LAW Band, cLAW Band and Warband. Or as is oft’ times called Wizard, Witches and Warriors; each order being sworn to the ancient virtues of Truth, of Honour and of Justice.

Whilst the Druid members of LAW may be found at Avebury, the nearest Saturday to each Solstice and Equinox and at Stonehenge at the actual dawn, presiding over public ritual and celebration (English Heritage and Salisbury Constabulary permitting), many of the Witches and Warriors will be seen to join them.

Dragon Coven of Law (Dragon cLAW) is a loose network of Witches and Wiccans (oft’ times assisted by Shaman, Christian and members of other spiritual paths) tend to focus their celebrations at the Agricultural and / or Fire Festivals and do so often in private and closed rituals rather than the public ones. However, many attend and participate in the public rites, also.

The Warriors, not surprisingly, may be found on the Battlefield, protests and political marches where they participate in non violent direct action. Magical support for such actions is usually provided by the Dragon Coven of LAW and / or the Druid arm. There is not surprisingly a large amount of cross over and many members of one order, also belong to or work with the others.

The Loyal Arthurian Warband is a member order of the Council of British Druid Orders, on which Arthur holds the permanent position and office of Battle Chieftain.

Arthur, who would consider himself at one Wizard, Witch and Warrior, may be found working with all three branches in their various roles: performing public ritual, laying down magical support and challenging Unjust Laws, often through the courts, having invariable been arrested standing with the Warriors in Battle.
Thus is the Tri-Nature of the Loyal Arthurian Warband.
