I asked on the Stanley Camp discussion list:

I see she trained to join the Auxiliary Nursing Service (ANS):

And Tony lists her with the ANS at the La Salle Relief Hospital during 
the fighting:

But I don't see her on John Black's copy of the CWGC list of internees 
at Stanley. Does anyone know what happened to her?

And I'm guessing she was Carol Bateman's mother - can anyone confirm?

Tony Banham replied:

I can only speculate. Hargreaves Howell married Carol in Shanghai in the 1920s, and of course there were a lot of ‘white Russians’ in Shanghai at that stage. It seems that Olga was not interned, so it is feasible that she was Carol’s mother (and Russian by birth) who elected to join them in Hong Kong.

There is an Olga Bateman nee Kornikova born about 1901 and married in Shanghai in early 1920s to (Capt) Robert William Bateman DSC born 1888 travelling to and fro HK before and after the War. He is listed as a Marine Supt and Shipping Manager at diffferent times, in 1947 with Matheson & Co. Could she be the one listed as ANS? She would be too young to be Carol Bateman's mother. They seem to have arrived in Liverpool from HK on the MV Glenapp (Hospital Ship I think) in August 1946. He's on your list Tony under unallocated RNR, POW card gives wife's address in Kowloon.
