Schofield, who continued the mission on his own after his friend is killed, arrives at the destroyed French village of Écouse-Saint-Mein and is knocked unconscious by a bullet. He later wakes up, and walks around and finds a local woman, Lauri, who has a baby girl with her. She treats his wounds and, in turn, he comforts them both, gives them food and some milk he had been keeping for himself.

Eventually, he leaves and, amidst the burning rubble, he is given chase by two German soldiers, managing to strangle one of them to death while fending off the other one. The next morning, after coming off the river he jumped into the night before Schofield reaches a massive group of soldiers surrounding a man who chants for them. He is informed they are the 2nd. Devons, the group he was commissioned to find, and desperately goes through them, seeing the attack is about to begin and there are too many on his way to reach Colonel Mackenzie their Commander.

As they are all bombarded by the Germans, Schofield runs on an open field and gets a hold of Mackenzie. He manages, after pleading for his attention, to deliver the letter and the British counterattack is called off. Having successfully accomplished his mission, Schofield is then directed to where the first wave of British fighting back the Germans were, to find Joseph, Blake's older Lieutenant brother. Upon being informed by Schofield of his brother's demise, Joseph is shaken and saddened, but, agrees to Schofield writing to their mother and walks off.

Question: If someone could confirm these 2 continuity errors...The soldiers move the tree from across the road and they all jump back in the truck. The shot then looks back to the scene of the farmhouse but the tree is not there. Also the last scene where he walks towards the tree, I am sure the tree had no foliage in one split second or looked quite different. I thought it may have been on purpose but I found no reference to it. Are these valid?
