Ike’s Adventures in North Yorkshire – Part 2

Heather took Ike to North Yorkshire in October. Here’s their second report. The next day was mostly snoozing! After all it is a holiday. But Ike did have one short walk to a nearby cache with the Mr Men. He learnt that while the cache itself might be ordinary, you can still learn interesting things, if the person who places the cache, puts interesting information about the area or a famous person.

This cache was all about one of Fifty Fantastic Females, Clare Hollingworth OBE.   Clare Hollingworth OBE (10 October 1911 – 10 January 2017) was an English journalist and author. She was the first war correspondent to report the outbreak of World War ll, described as “the scoop of the century”. As a reporter for The Daily Telegraph in 1939, while travelling from Poland to Germany, she spotted and reported German forces massed on the Polish border; three days later she was the first to report the German invasion of Poland. Hollingworth was appointed OBE by Elizabeth II for “services to journalism” in 1982. She was 105 when she died.
