Alfie Solomons talks of how he killed an Italian during the war. The Italians fought on the same side as the British (who presumably Alfie fought for) in World War I.

Churchill reads aloud a letter from Tommy, stating he fought at Verdun; Churchill also asks who else in the room fought there, to which a few men raise their hands. In actual fact, British forces were not at Verdun and opened up the Somme largely to relieve French forces. Verdun was solely a French effort.
