>> She was the doyenne of journalism. Clare Hollingworth, best known for the scoop of the century when she reported the start of World War II, has died at the age of 105. I'm Tara Joseph in Hong Kong. I'm a Reuters correspondent here and president of the FCC. One of the biggest press clubs in the world.

Clare was a treasured member of the club and used to come here regularly.>> Happy birthday.>> We had a table reserved for her in the corner which she would come even hen she was in her older years, too old to walk and sometimes too frail to speak.

She would always eat her favorite dishes. Shepherd's pie and caviar. And if you got to know Clare you could always tell that she had a certain energy about her. Clare personified journalism in an era gone by, way before electronic journalism. She would take notes out in the field, catch rides with army colonels and she wrote little notes in her notebook.
00:00:57
She would type up her stories on an old typewriter, recounting her experiences and what she saw. She broke numerous stories in the Middle East, Africa, and also here in Asia. She also broke barriers for women and journalists. But she was also the last in an era gone by in journalism before satellites, before Twitter and before social media.

At the club this evening, a moment of silence in tribute to Clare. Many remembering her, saddened by her death but proud that she lived to the age of 105.
