I mean errors in the story line, for example when Kaparzo (not sure if its spelt right) gets shot he falls with his rifle on his right, but in the next frame its on his left.
There are others Ive noticed, has anyone else?
There is one on the beach scene and a few in the end battle.

http://www.nitpickers.com

Try that URL, someone on the forum posted it in response to a couple nitpicks I had about SPR. It really has quite an extensive list of inconsistencies regarding both historical content and other miscellaneous stuff that is inconsistent from scene to scene.

Im not bothered about the historical content, but just happened to notice a couple of things, each time I see it I seem to notice more inconsistancies.
Given all that its still a damn fine film.

I think that it's intended to be the sanme person, as it is made quite obvious. It could be that after he is released, he has joined the SS (it happened).
This would also explain why he is shot...

I dont think so really.
He may of been picked up by the 2nd, but he wouldnt have 'just joined' the SS.
Upham shoots him because he sees that he was the one that shot Capt. Miller, who previously saved his life by releasing him when all the others wanted to execute him.

He's fighting with them, but he's wearing an army camo smock and you can see his Heer collar Litzen underneath.
