The Avenue of Norfolk Pine trees in the Memorial Park honour those from the district who fell in World War One. Each tree has a plaque commemorating the fallen soldier with one plaque recording three names from the same family.

This afternoon at the Buckland Hill Memorial Park in Francis-street, the ceremony of planting trees to border an honour avenue will be performed. Each of the trees will be planted in memory of fallen soldier, and the honour avenue will lead from the main entrance to the park in Francis-street to a court of honour on high ground overlooking Mosman Bay and commanding a magnificent view of the Swan River. The first tree will be planted by Lieut General Sir J. Talbot Hobbs, who will also address the gathering.
