A Conversation for Correct Use of the Apostrophe In English


Post 1


Help please. "Anytown Hockey Club. Men's Veterans' Tour. Amsterdam 2011". An apostrophe too many? Tee shirts about to be printed! Thanks. Nick

Gnomon - time to move on

There should be no apostrophe after Veteran. If there were just one veteran and he was going on tour, it would be the Veteran Tour. No need for a possessive here.
