The Legion is a system which can be thrown out of balance by
suppressing or altering any of its parts. Of it, could the following
verse have been written:-
"Pluck one thread, and the web ye mar;
Break but one
Of a thousand keys, and the paining jar
Through all will run."
So, if unprepared to work the system exactly as described in these
pages, please do not start the Legion at all. In this connection read
carefully chapter 20 "The Legion System variable".
Without affiliation to the Legion (through one of its approved
Councils) there is no Legionary membership.
If past experience is an indication, no branch of the Legion which is
worked faithfully according to rule will fail.
