New members joined the group and adults joined to become scout masters. Other troops were started later in the area but few survived.
A large bugle band was formed in the troop and in 1910, the 1st Luton went to Silsoe to form a Guard of Honour for King Edward VII at a large rally. They were also invited to the national rally in Windsor Great Park in 1911.
By 1913 the 1st Luton had moved its headquarters a number of times and had grown to over 150 members in the troop. It had also formed a drum corp to support the large bugle band.
