Highgate RSL Honour Avenues Group of dedicated volunteers gather at Kings Park on Tuesday or Thursday to maintain the plaques of servicemen and women killed overseas in the Honour Avenues of Kings Park.
Together the work to maintain and refurbish and place plaques to remember lives lost during times of war. The first plaques were placed in Kings Park in 1919, and today there are around 1200 plaques commemorating those who joined the services in Western Australia but were killed in action overseas.
Today the plaques are maintained by the Group, which is a sub-committee of the Highgate RSL. With the generous support of Alcoa, the Honour Avenues Group is currently replacing all the older cast iron plaques with aluminum plaques. If you are interested in organising a plaque for a family member killed overseas in a time of war, please write to the
