Corrected entry: Fraser regales the platoon with a tale of how he inherited a deep sea diver's suit when the owner died of the bends, and later there is some concern that when Fraser uses the suit underwater he will get the bends if he surfaces too quickly. Deep sea divers don't get the bends; they breathe uncompressed surface air pumped into their helmets. They do not 'compress', do not need to 'decompress' and do not get the bends.
Corrected entry: Cpl. jones has converted his butcher's van into a troop carrier. It has concealed holes in either side and in the roof to shoot the platoon's rifles out of. When the platoon show Cpt. Mainwaring their drill, the command is for five rounds to be fired out the lefthand side, then the righthand side, then the roof. But instead of firing out of the lefthand side of the van, the platoon fire out of the righthand side twice.
Corrected entry: Jones' military history keeps changing from episode to episode. In 'The Man and The Hour', he states that he was invalided out in 1915. However in 'The Deadly Attachment' and many other episodes he talks about being in the trenches in 1916. In 'My British Buddy', he recollects serving with Americans in WWI. America didn't join the war until 1917.
