Town players join Footballers' Battalion

The players of the Luton Town Football Club have given a fine lead to the members of the other professional clubs throughout the country. Eight of the Luton men have joined the Footballers' Battalion of the new Army - a number which is larger than that of any other club except Clapton Orient.

The Luton players who have enlisted are: John Dunn (full back), Robert Frith (centre half), T. T. Wilson (half back), Hugh Roberts (outside right), Arthur Wileman and Arthur Roe (inside rights), Ernest Simms (centre forward) and Frank Lindley (outside left).
