Continuity mistake: It is 1940. Two pilots come out of a house - one of them has just lost his wife and family in the London Blitz, the other is an RAF Squadron Leader. The door they come out of has a modern electric bell push - a post 1965 version, white rectangular box with a round button.
Factual error: At the end of the 'Goodbye' the men all board a train which leaves along a track on a seaside pier. The shot changes from this stylised vision to a shot of an Edwardian Lady alone on a railway platform. In the background is a 1970s, ie. modern, diesel train.
Continuity mistake: After crashing, the pilot jumps from his burning plane with the back of his jacket on fire. The flames are extinguished but after a short dialogue, the pilot is seen walking from the scene from behind with not even a scorch mark on his jacket.
Revealing mistake: When the Remagen bridge is bombed, it is obvious that the bomber planes shown have been taken from several shots (possibly also from an earlier film) and the shots were superimposed. Also, the bombers appear transparent, and the background sky's color is unnaturally strong, too.
Continuity mistake: The morning after the sexual assault on the colonel's wife, the protagonist watches the jeep leave for the airport without him. During the scene, the shadows on the road before the hotel change between shot and reverse. (00:34:30)
