The origin of this custom is contained in the Treatise of Military Discipline in its 5th edition, 1743: "The Retreat or Tattoo is generally beat at 10.0 o'clock in summer and at eight o'clock in winter.

The public houses are at the same time to shut their doors and sell no more liquor that night."
