    The Auckland Museum Library's manuscripts collection holds a war memoir, written by 22628 Arthur Edward Dendy, that contains a reference concerning the death of Frederick Beechey, who was a close friend of Dendy's. [MS 2010/17, p. 212a]. "Lieutenant Beechey was bayoneted when valiantly holding his ground at the point where the enemy penetrated our line.". New Zealand lost 18,166 service men and women, out of a population of approximately 1,089,825, in World War I. Nearly all those killed were buried overseas - 5325 New Zealanders have no known grave.
