'Buck' Compton: Picture of my girl.
Bill Guarnere: Good-lookin' broad, Buck.
'Buck' Compton: She's, uh...
'Buck' Compton: ... she's finished with me.
Bill Guarnere: Really?
'Buck' Compton: Yeah. Yeah, it's uh...
Bill Guarnere: Just in time for Christmas, huh?

In the episode where Easy is rescuing the British soldiers, Bull Randelman is seen in the extreme foreground. He is in a boat paddling along with the rest of the soldiers, but he does not have a paddle in his hands.
When shown on the BBC, the series was initially run with the first two episodes edited together. This meant that the opening titles were changed to account for two directors and two different writers. The Veterans' interviews for Episode 2 (Day of Days) were moved to the end of the episode before the end credits. In the programme itself, the scene with Winters sitting in the doorway gazing out at the air armada flying into Normandy is smoothly blended into the 'flying clouds' sequence that begins Episode 2 (which is much shorter).
