Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Husband of Mrs Ethel M. NUNN, 27 Abbott Street, Launceston

Returned Soldiers' Death-It was with great regret that the news of the death of the late Driver E. H. Nunn was heard here. Thc deceased had taken up a farm at Paradise after his return from active service, but his health broke down some months ago, and he proceeded to the Base Hospital, Launceston, for treatment, but unfortunately he was unable to pull through, and he succombed at that institution. The funeral took place on Thursday at thc Sheffield cemetery after the arrival of the Launceston train. Very great sympathy is felt for the widow, who, with a young family, is left to mourn.
