After the Manchester Pals arrive in the Trenches, one of the characters receive a box with gifts in it. One of the gifts is a 1918 US Trench Knife and that it was a gift from their Granddad. This could not be possible since the Knife design did not exist until 1918, while this scene takes place during 1916. See more
