Beachy to Belgian Soldier

This page has been updated to include basic information about those that lost their lives. The data is by courtesy of the CWGC and I have included information about those who served on the ships but who had a normal burial as well as those lost at sea and recorded on the Tower Hill memorial. In most cases further family information about the individuals is available on the CWGC website - External Ref. #7.



Beachy

She was a 1,600 grt steam passenger/refrigerated cargo ship that was sunk on 11 January 1941 by a bomb dropped from an aircraft at position 53° 29’ N 16° 24’ W. It is possible that Mr. Barclay was rescued but lost his life a lot later but I can't confirm this.

Beechwood

She was a 4,894 grt steam refrigerated cargo ship that survived an air attack during which she was bombed and subjected to gunfire on 3 February 1940 at a position 3 miles E of Smith’s Knoll light vessel. She was later sunk on 26 August 1942 by German submarine U-130 at position 05° 30’ N 14° 04’ W. The CWGC database gives Mr Smith’s date of death as 26 August 1942. I have not found out any information about Mr Jones who died three years later than the sinking of the ship.

Behar

There were two ships of this name that were casualties of the war but cross-checking a sample of the names listed against the CWGC database those below shows that they lost their lives on 18 March 1944 so this was the ship of this name launched in 1943. She was a 7,840 grt motor cargo ship that was sunk on 18 March 1944 by gunfire from the Japanese Cruiser Tone. A large number of those surviving were executed by the Japanese.
