The BLESMA Challenge Coin - Would You Buy One?

#1
For those of you who have bought one of UK Challenge Coins Limited Edition Poppy Coin, you may be aware from the thread that Gundulph and MittMayo were open to the suggestion of producing a BLESMA Challenge Coin. The coin is now in it's final design stage and awaiting final approval from BLESMA HQ. Once approved the coin will be offered for sale not only here but also to BLESMA members for £10 with £4 from the sale of each coin going directly into the coffers of BLESMA. Much needed money for the association that will be used in rehabilitation events to assist members.

Thanks to both Gundulph & MittMayo here's the design ...

Should the apostrophe be after the s in "men's" since it's a plural possession?

When the possessor is single we indicate possession by using an apostrophe followed by the letter s:

The man’s coat
my sister’s hat

When the possessors are plural, the apostrophe is placed after the final s:

The girls’ bicycles
my cousins’ parents

No, because 'men' is already plural and thus, would be apostrophe 's' to show possession to the plural.....or summat like that! :grin:

Looking at the example above, I would say that "girls" is also already plural......are there any English language teachers in here?!?!

That's as BLESMA spell it; Ex-Service Men's seperate and with the apostrophe. I've already been told off for getting it wrong!

If you want to be pedantic we have members who are still serving so clearly not ex, female members and some that haven't even lost a limb but use of limb(s) or eye(s)!

I wasn't being pedantic, I truly thought it was one word and that was all!

Edited to add that I was in no way detracting from the organisation, nor the coin.

You're not the only one, I fecked it up Royally to begin with, spelling Allez Uber De Platz until told off by K13_EOD...

Anyway, it's not a Coin for "The Association of English professors" Thank $&*^ :)
