Olga BATEMAN [1901-1963]
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
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.
