Deliberate mistake: The me-109 have painted yellow fronts, this wasn't done by the Germans until after Dunkirk. Christopher Nolan has admitted doing this deliberately so the audience could tell the difference between the spitfire and the me-109 during the combat scenes.

Deliberate mistake: Christopher Nolan admits he used a French destroyer instead of a British destroyer, for practical purposes (most people won't notice). The giveaway is that it has a closed bridge. British warships were built with open bridges till after the end of the Second World War, as can be seen by looking at HMS Cavalier (http://thedockyard.co.uk/explore/three-historic-warships/hms-cavalier/), which was built in 1944.
