Crew or equipment visible
The team enter the army armoury and remove a quantity of weapons and ammunition, but these are seen in the same building. Also, the sub machine guns have magazines fitted. The British military would never store weapons and ammunition in the same building and certainly not firearms with magazines fitted, for just the reasons of security. Armouries are usually manned full time anyway.
During the weapons robbery at the army camp, Porthill, played by Bryan Forbes, is wearing a uniform with an RASC (Royal Army Service Corps) shoulder flash, but he is missing the striped lanyard which he should have been wearing over his left shoulder. Such a lanyard, usually attached to a clasp knife stored in the left breast pocket of the battledress jacket, was standard equipment for members of the RASC in 1960.
The staff car used during the arms robbery at the army camp has British Military Number plates and stick on insignia. When the raid is over and the military insignia are peeled off the car, civilian plates are shown being thrown into the boot and the car drives off still fitted with military number plates.
As Col. Hyde is showing the movie of the exterior of the bank that they will rob he tells his cohorts, "This is the view of the bank that you will see three weeks from today, gentlemen." Sure enough, during the events just before the actual robbery: As the guard opens the rear door of the armored truck, the same-dressed man with a newspaper in his overcoat pocket walks past and, as the guards put the boxes on the flatbed truck, the same two women in light overcoats walk past.
When Elizabeth, played by Nanette Newman, is soaking, apparently naked, in a bubble bath and taunting her husband, the white strapless bra or swimsuit she is wearing can be seen when she moves her left arm.
In the first scene where Friend Stevens (Kieron Moore's character) appears, he's training some people in the gym. When a young man hits the small punching bag, the screens on the windows behind him shake visibly.
