Gallipoli

Other mistake: In the scene where Mel Gibson is playing AFL with his fellow soldiers during training in Cairo, we see him wearing a digital wrist watch when he whistles and raises his arm. (00:49:30)

Other mistake: During the scene of the ill-fated charge by the Australians, some of the bayonets on Turkish soldiers' rifles wobble. Apparently, the fake bayonets were made of rubber.

Mistakes

Mel Gibson sits around the campfire at the railway camp with the lads, reading newspaper reports of the April 25, 1915 landing at Gallipoli. The 3rd Light Horse Brigade (including the 10th Light Horse Regiment from Western Australia) landed at Gallipoli on 20 May 1915. This would have given him less than 3 weeks to enlist, train, travel to Egypt by ship and land on the Peninsula. A bit of a stretch. In reality, the 10 Light Horse regiment was raised in October 1914, with the 1st-3rd reinforcements departing Fremantle February 19-22, 1915.
