By email from Henry Ching:

I was very interested in what Philip Cracknell wrote about Herbert Stuart and Edith Attwater Hills ((see http://gwulo.com/node/17110)). Sister Hills in the HKVDC Nursing Detachment earned a Mentioned in Despatches, but the citation in the London Gazette gives no details of what she did for this.  Do you know?  Was it for her nursing of the wounded Japanese officer?  Some sources say that it was the obvious nursing care given to him which resulted in the nurses at the St Albert’s temporary hospital not being ill-treated, even although the Japanese officer died.

Philip has written more about the Hills family at:
