A Soldier's Daughter - S2-E1

Factual error: Captain Souter is shown lying dead in the snow following the massacre at Gandamak. In fact, Thomas Souter was one of the few who survived to be captured by the Afghans and was later freed.

Peaky Blinders (2013)

Episode #3.3 - S3-E3

Factual error: Tommy refers to Istanbul. It was always still called Constantinople in the West at that time and would be for several more years.

Peaky Blinders (2013)

Episode #3.5 - S3-E5

Factual error: All of Tommy's former men salute him. As a sergeant-major and not an officer he would never be saluted. This is drummed into all soldiers and they'd never do it, even in civilian life. Not only is it against regulations, but many NCOs would take it as an insult.

Dunkirk (2017)

Factual error: Commander Bolton addresses the rear-admiral by his full rank. In fact, he would undoubtedly just address him as "Admiral", the courteous form of address for all flag officers.

Suggested correction: A rear-admiral can be referred to as such. It is not technically incorrect.

Dunkirk (2017)

Factual error: Colonel Winnant wears a regimental cap badge. In fact, full colonels (as he is) and brigadiers have a different cap badge (a lion standing on a crown). It's not entirely beyond the realms of possibility that he would choose to continue to wear his old cap badge, but it would be very unusual (and completely against regulations).

Dunkirk (2017)

Factual error: When asked whether he had a gun, Cillian Murphy says he had a .303. As an officer, he would have carried a pistol but not a rifle. It was not until later in the war that British officers began to carry weapons other than sidearms, and even then it was usually SMGs and not rifles.

Peaky Blinders (2013)

Episode #3.2 - S3-E2

Factual error: Father Hughes says that Admiral Hall may be detained in the House of Lords. Admiral Hall, although knighted, was never ennobled and thus did not sit in the House of Lords.

The Last Ship (2014)

Season 3 generally

Factual error: Commander Garnett, previously the chief engineer, becomes executive officer and starts wearing the line officers' star above her rank rings. This does not happen. An engineer is not trained to command a ship.

The Last Ship (2014)

Shanzhai - S3-E3

Plot hole: Chandler chooses Granderson as his XO over Cameron Burk, partly because Burk made an error of judgement and partly as Granderson has been with him since the beginning. However, he completely overlooks the navigator, Lt Mejia, who is a highly competent officer who has also been with him since the beginning and has considerable seniority over Granderson (but is a recurring character as opposed to being on the main cast). While much is made of Burk being demoted, nobody says a word about Mejia being passed over.
