Goofs and Gaffes - Spoil of War - Hand-held ammo

"Greg slips the ammo box into his parka pocket" - says the script...


Greg and Paul gather guns and ammunition and prepare to scout out the quarry

Where are we?: Greg and Paul gather guns and ammunition, and prepare to scout out the quarry — and discover the source of the gunfire which greeted their arrival at Vic's hideout.

What's the goof?: Ian McCulloch tries repeatedly to slip the ammunition cartridge box into his parka pocket, before giving up and setting off on foot with the shells still in his hand. There is strong continuity in the sequences which follow — with Greg forced to keep hold of the cartridges in one hand until he reaches the quarry edge.
