Corrected entry: When Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier and Clive Dunn are walking across the street at the beginning of the movie, you can see the "Cats Eyes" in the centre of the road between each white line. These were not invented during World War 2.


Correction: "Cats Eyes" were invented in 1933 by Percy Shaw. In 1935, he opened a factory to manufacture them and a year later, the first 50 were laid in Bradford. They became popular throughout Britain in World War II.'s_eye_(road).

Corrected entry: When John Le Mesurier calls for 5 rounds rapid fire from the van, towards enemy on the left, the soldiers deliver three "rounds", then when called upon to deliver 5 to the sky above, they deliver four.

Correction: The Warmington on Sea platoon is not an efficient military outfit. This could be a character mistake, rather than a film mistake.

Captain Mainwaring: I intend to mould those men out there into an aggressive fighting force. I'm not going to get very far if you keep inviting them to "step this way."



When the platoon hear the church bells, they mistake it for the invasion signal and construct a barricade across the high street. If you look behind them you can see cars parked on the road in the distance that date from well after the 1940s.
