Accompanied by a copy of his Index Card (confirming his awarding of the British War Medal), three pages from the London Gazette (with various promotion announcements), along with assorted research papers. Footnote: Ernest Edward Cunnah was born in Richmond, Surrey, England, the son of Hugh Lupus Cunnah and Eveline Mary Cunnah. His father was a merchant in the Australian Trade and founded Cunnah & Son, a family business that still exists today, "supplying high quality fuel for industrial and domestic use in the North Wales and Cheshire areas". Ernest Cunnah is listed in the 1911 Census as being married to Ida Cunnah, the two residing at 17 Carnarvon Crescent, Boscombe, Bournemouth, Dorset, and having a General Domestic Servant named Alice Jones. During the First World War, he enlisted with the Royal Army Medical Corps as a Dental Surgeon. Cunnah was to be a Temporary Lieutenant whilst employed as a Dental Surgeon, effective April 4, 1916, the announcement appearing in the Third Supplement to the London Gazette 29561 of Tuesday, August 25, 1916, on Thursday, August 27, 1916, page 4252.

Upon the ceasing of hostilities and his return to civilian life, Cunnah relinquished his commission and retained the rank of Captain, the announcement appearing in the Supplement to the London Gazette 31353 of Friday, May 23, 1919, page 6435.
