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.

Correction: The man is a doddering old nitwit. He could easily have his years confused, and perhaps he also confused Canadian troops, who arrived in France in 1915, with Americans?

Don't Forget the Diver - S4-E2

Factual error: While Capt. Square is looking through his binoculars at what he thinks is Mainwaring's platoon marching with their rifles, a 1960's Bedford lorry drives past on the road behind them.
