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 #3.5 - 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: 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).

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.

Shanzhai - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, Doc Rios says he can hardly see anything without his glasses. In this episode, still without his glasses, he looks out of the hut window and describes the compound beyond in detail.

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.

Wonder Woman (2017)

Factual error: When Steve gets dressed after bathing in the pool he zips up his fly. The film is set during the First World War. The zip was not used on clothing until 1925 and did not become common on flies until long after that.

Wonder Woman (2017)

Factual error: The word "intel", used several times, is first recorded in 1961. It certainly wasn't in use in 1918.

Wonder Woman (2017)

Character mistake: While posing as Steve's driver, Sameer refers to him as a colonel. He is actually wearing captain's epaulettes.

Other mistake: Field Marshal Haig is listed in the credits as Field Marshall Haig. This spelling (with two Ls) is only ever a surname, not a rank or job title.
