His Commanding Officer wrote: 'Lieutenant Nunnely met his death as follows at Neuve Chapelle on the 26th October 1914. The enemy had captured a trench in which was a gun. He attempted to recapture the trench by crawling through a wire fence, which was about thirty yards from the enemy. His men got hung up in the wire, and Lieutenant Nunneley calmly stood up, encouraging and directing them regardless of all personal risks, and was shot at close quarters by the enemy.’
