His Obituary from the KRRC Chronicle (1923): The announcement of the rather sudden death of "Algy" Bewicke-Copley gave a shock to his old friends in the Regiment. He had always appeared to be the very picture of health, and as active as ever in mind and body; an activity but recently displayed in candidature for the House of Commons and in a visit to South America. Our friend joined the 4th Battalion at Agra in 1877, and entered with keenest zest into all the Regimental sports and pursuits. In the field of pig-sticking he did so well that, but for a piece of very bad luck, he would undoubtedly have won the Kadir Cup. After three years of service in India he was transferred to the 1st Battalion in Ireland and, with two intervals—one of active service in Egypt and the other of the Staff College-remained therein until 1890, when he received the appointment of DAAG at Barbados. The next ten years Bewicke-Copley spent on the Staff, partly in Ireland, partly in India. During the South African War he was promoted to the command of the 1st Battalion, and gained considerable distinction as leader of a flying column, in which capacity his coolness and presence of mind appeared to great advantage and gave every confidence to his troops. After the war he received further appointments on the Staff, but in 1912 retired from the Service. In the Great War the General's activities gained him the KBE. Within a few hours of his death he was followed to the grave by Lady Bewicke-Copley, who had just received instruction that the ancient barony of Cromwell had been revived in her favour, and would be inherited by her son.
