Oh! What a Lovely War

Revealing mistake: The shot in the station is somewhat revealing, not only a modern diesel train (as already reported) in 1914 but also a third electric rail. (01:05:15)

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.
