1 corrected entry in season 1

(10 votes)

The Man and the Hour - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the first episode of Series 1, Wilson mentions to Mainwaring that he was a sergeant during the First World War. However, in this episode, at Jones' wedding, he is wearing the insignia of a Captain.

Correction: Wilson could have been promoted to Captain right at the end of the war. Given his absent minded nature its quite possible that most of his memories were of his time as a Sergeant. In either case he'd be telling the truth.

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.
