Royal Marines TV Advert

#1
I notice there is a lot of advertising on TV for the Marines at the moment, and I have a question for the audience....

The advert asks "Have you got the Royal Marines Commandos State of Mind"

Should that really say "Royal Marine Commandos" or "Royal Marines Commando" or is it really "Royal Marines Commandos" ?

Sorry, but it's starting to bug me, and Google couldn't solve it!

Auxie, no it *doesn't* matter, it's just a question in search of an answer.

Don't let it upset you if you can't answer it, there are plenty of other topics I am sure you can make a meaningful contribution to.

Royal Marine Commando is the individual, Royal Marines Commandos is the plural for 2 or more of same.
They're Commandos belonging to the Royal Marines, geddit?
An oppo of mine, during training, had a tat done 'Royal Marines Commandoes', oh how he laughed as we took the pish...he eventually burnt the offending 'es' off with a red hot clasp knife and then had fun explaining the burn to the MO

Its imperative that you find a dyslexic, ill educated tattoo artist when you get you pussers tat

Paras keep it simple in line with their IQs,

I think it is "Royal marines commando's".

The s in marines is the plural. The s after commando the possessive.

I think the advert is trying to say (the one in the underpass anyway) that if you can count to 4 then you're smart enough to join the bootys.

The other one on the beach means that if you fancy a tryout for SBS then you need to count to 6 :)
