Early in the movie, German Wehrmacht (Army) soldiers are operating a truck with a swastika emblem on the door. Guernsey was occupied by regular Wehrmacht troops (319 Infantry Division), so vehicles would have been emblazoned with the Iron Cross. The swastika markings were mainly used by Waffen SS units, which were not posted on the Channel Islands during occupation. See more »
