Factual error: If you look at the band playing in the Regal Club the night the boy's mother first visits, the night where they first bring on the donkey, you'll notice that the drum kit used by the drummer in the band is, from what we can see, a 1980's Pearl kit, far too modern. (00:39:00)
Factual error: The recruits' hair is far too long when they parade after being conscripted. In those days Army recruits practically had their heads shaved - sideburns were shaved off to one inch above the ear (Army regulations). Curiously, this applies to the Staff Sergeant too - his hair would barely be visible under his hat.
Violet Kray: I don't think it's possible to love someone too much but I think you can love them in the wrong way.
