Brigadier Bernard 'Bun' Cowey DSO, OBE (20 November 1911 - 20
August 1997) was an English rugby union wing who played club rugby
for Newport and international rugby for Wales. Unlike most rugby
internationals Cowey was most associated with the Army Rugby Union
rather than club or county rugby. In his later life he became
Chairman of the Army Rugby Union. Cowey was born in Tidworth,
Wiltshire in 1911 but when he joined the British Armed Forces, he
was posted in the Welch Regiment, traditionally the reserve of
Welsh nationals. He played rugby while on duty, for his regiment
and later played for the Army's own rugby team. Outside the army,
Cowey played for two first class rugby union clubs' London Welsh
and Newport. It was while playing with Newport that he was selected
to play for Wales, after his service with the Welch Regiment made
him eligible to represent his adoptive country.
