In "Currahee", Robert Strayer is (correctly) wearing the rank insignia of a major when Easy Company is celebrating its paratrooper qualification. Strayer was promoted to lieutenant colonel in January or February of 1943, and Winters refers to him as such during his explanation to Sobel about the latrine inspection incident. On D-Day (in episode 2) just prior to the attack on the 105mm guns at Brecourt Manor, Winters and another officer refer to Strayer as a major. He had been an LTC long enough (16 or 17 months) to rule out a slip of the tongue, especially by two different officers.
The series was actually a BBC/HBO co-production (with HBO contributing the majority of the cash). When the series aired in the UK, the title sequence began "HBO and the BBC present...". The DVD versions, and presumably all other international versions, begin "HBO presents..."
