It was given to me by a local friend who is trying to work out its origin.  

Any suggestions are most welcome. Many thanks!

Eligibility for UK Awards, Decorations and Honours including medals for WW2 Veterans and ARP

Good afternoon (Canberra time) David,

In researching material for a publication on Australian citizens that fought on behalf of the Allies against the Japanese in WW2 in mainland China and SE Asia including HK, I had difficulty finding any reference to the eligibility criteria for awards, decorations, honours and medals particularly relating to the gallant men and women in their role as defenders in the defence HK during WW2.

I have been researching this and updating Wikipedia from time-to-time. Below are the results so far; please let me know if you have any additions or alterations to make.
