Lawrence Holsworth, Founder and Editor-in-Chief:

“Strike-Hold!” is the motto of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment in which I served during the 1980′s, and seemed a fitting name also for a site related to all things current and historical about elite units, special operations and airborne forces.  My background includes writing commissioned briefing papers for a leading UK defence consultancy, helping to launch a successful European military magazine, being the assistant editor of a high-quality European airsoft magazine, and also having close to 20 years experience in marketing and communications for leading companies in a variety of industry sectors.

I’m now based in southern Massachusetts in the USA, and my “day job” is as the Director of Business Development and Marketing for Hyde Definition Ltd. (the company behind the PenCott™ camouflage family).
