In recognition of service rendered by the members of the town's Special Constabulary, Luton Watch Committee summoned them to a dinner at the Winter Assembly Hall on February 12th, 1919.

Now they were being demobilised and the difficulty for them was to re-accustom themselves to their old civilian life.
