    • Corporal Beech was the son of Francis Joseph and Ethel Christina Beech, of Picton, Marlborough.

      Official History of New Zealand in the Second World War 1939-45: Divisional Cavalry (p.45) lists Corporal Beech's death as being on 1 January 1941. AWMM
    • Francis Rex Beech (Service number 1093) from Picton, Marlborough served in the NZ Army in the Westrn Desert during World War 2. He gave his next of kin on embarkation as Mr F.J. Beech (father), of Picton,. A Radio engineer in civilian life, he was a Corporal in the 2nd Divisional Cavalry of 2NZEF: 1st Echelon (alongside his cousin John Brendon Beech #1092) He was Killed in Action, 1 February 1941 in Kufra, Libya and is buried at the Knightsbridge War Cemetery, in Acroma, Libya (grave reference 6.J.13). He was Mentioned in Despatches (MiD) for his actions with the famous Long Range Desert Group that operated behind enemy lines in the Western Desert[3] His name appears on the War Memorial on the Picton-Nelson Road, and the panel for WW2 dead on the Picton War Memorial. Note: The Official History of New Zealand in the Second World War 1939-45: Divisional Cavalry (p.45) lists Corporal Beech's death as being on 1 January 1941. Another cousin Bernard McBeth, who was taken as a POW later in 1941, died in the Lamsdorf Death March in January 1945

      Kufra was an oasis of Strategic importance during WW2. On 31 January 1941 Pat Clayton, an explorer recruited by British Intelligence, was captured by the Italian Auto-Saharan Company near Jebel Sherif, when leading "T" Patrol in reconnaissance of the planned attack on Kufra. He was the basis for the character of Peter Madox in The English Patient. In 2008 historians Brendan O'Carroll (New Zealand), Guno Goss (Switzerland) and Roberto Chiavetto (Italy) travelled to Libya to track down three LRDG trucks that had been abandoned in 1941 at Gebel Sherif, in Southern Libya, after the LRDG's first encounter with their Italian equivalent, the Autosahariana. This 65 minute documentary traced their journey, and includes never before seen archival film of the LRDG in action. It was first aired on ANZAC day, 25 April 2009 on Television New Zealand Public - Jenifer - Researcher - 21 April 2020 - Wikitree / Francis Rex Beech.
