Reunion for Luton 'Yellow Devils'

[Beds & Herts Saturday Telegraph: July 19th, 1919]

A meeting was held at the Corn Exchange, Luton, on Wednesday evening (July 16th, 1919), presided over by the Mayor (Councillor H. Impey), when the question of formulating some scheme to recognise the gallantry of the 1/5th Beds Regiment was discussed.

The day is long past when there was any need to print in glowing colours the wonder deeds of the famous 'Yellow Devils.' and their claim to a proportionate share in the celebration of peace was freely recognised.

An organising committee was formed, with the Mayor as Chairman, and it was decided to arrange a function in the nature of a reunion with a cold spread and an entertainment, in August. There are between 300 and 400 men of the Regiment in the town and district.

The two local organisations for discharged servicemen are to nominate three representatives each on the committee, of which Mr H. Inwards will be the moving spirit.
