Duel of Honor - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Klink goes to leave his quarters to meet the plane, he doesn't have his familiar outer coat in his arm or on him. When he gets to the rendezvous point, he has it on.

Hot Money - S3-E9

Other mistake: When the head counterfeiter comes in, there is a sign on the barracks behind him that says "BARRACK 3." Two problems with this. First, Hogan and company are housed in Barrack 3. Second, there is not a Barrack building between Hogan's building and Klink's office building.

A Russian Is Coming - S3-E12

Factual error: While introducing himself to the downed Russian pilot, Hogan claims he is with the "US Air Force." He was actually with the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) as the US Air Force wasn't formed until 1947, 2 years after the war ended.

Monkey Business - S3-E29

Factual error: In this episode, the Royal Navy submarine that acts as a radio relay for Hogan's men is hunted by a destroyer. Like in most such Hollywood scenes, depth charges are seen exploding right next to the submarine, which just shrugs the blasts off. In reality, any depth charge that went off closer than 100 meters was instantly deadly to a submerged sub.

Answer: It's a slang term for an isolated jail cell. In wartime, POWs who attempted to escape or otherwise thwart their captors might be punished with solitary confinement, often in a cramped, poorly ventilated, windowless space.
