Show generally

Continuity mistake: (Colour episodes only) In the section of the closing credits that features the main cast members marching, the sky colour and positions of the shadows on the ground change depending on the actor being featured at the time (the sky is blue when Arthur Lowe, John Laurie and Ian Lavender are seen, but it is grey when John Le Mesurier, Clive Dunn, James Beck and Arnold Ridley feature). This is more obvious on episodes that have had colour restoration undertaken.

Battle School - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: The platoon's rifles have no fore sight at various times in this episode, at other times they are fitted. Most noticeable on the railway platform and the march to camp (missing), but when they arrive at the camp, all the fore sights are on. They are missing during the outdoor training scenes - and they are missing from the credits at the end of every episode when the platoon members are shown in close up (these shots were from this episode).
