In 1947 Harry Tillman arranged for service groups, including the Returned Services Association, to establish trees in fifteen streets in the Papanui area and for plaques to be erected as a memorial to those who had served in World War Two.  The concept took off and fifteen Papanui Streets now have plaques saying  "Papanui Memorial Avenue To the Fallen 1939 - 1945."

The booklet was compiled by Janet Tillman in August 2008.
