oh, sorry, this may be a translation problem - my fault.
I used curfew (resp. take it from Martins post and looked it up in an 
online dictionary) in the meaning of legal "closing time" - the time, 
where all pubs (in an area) have to be closing by law - if they do not 
pay for a late concession/licence.
In German(y) this is called "Sperrstunde" - this term can be used in the 
same civil/opening meaning for pubs - or in military as you stated above .
Actually I do not know, if or where this is still in usage for pubs here 
- no need for that actually :) -, but I can remember, it was still in 
usage for pubs in my lifetime.

I thought England (or maybe Great Britain) is still using this for pubs.
At least, as this seems to be a problem, that causes the Prime Minister 
to intervene! ;-)
