Factual errors 

In the radio broadcast of Lord Haw Haw, he mentions the fall of France. Then a day or so later, the boats are called out for the Dunkirk Rescue mission (Operation Dynamo). France did not fall until 2 weeks after Dunkirk.

Revealing mistakes 

The "double decker" bus seen in the opening sequence is not a British bus at all, nor was it actually a double decked bus. An American bus was used, with a false upper deck grafted on to it. The American-style passenger door can be seen on the right-hand side in the bus's first appearance; a real London Transport bus would have had its door on the left-hand side.
