** Worse still in the scene that precedes it. Nicholls has just been killed, and many other casualties - both soldiers and horses - are strewn about the stage. When the scene shifts back to Devon, every single actor and puppet laying on the floor just... stays there.

* The scene in the play that takes place on Christmas, when Alfred is told that Nichols has died in the war. After his mother loses her temper and yells at him for only caring about Joey while half of the men in the village died with him, she apologizes and goes in to get something. Alfred then spontaneously decides to go over the Channel and look for Joey. His mother comes out and realizes what he's done, then runs back inside screaming for her husband.

* In the play, Albert looks upon all the corpses of horses on the field and comes to accept that Joey is dead (or so he thinks). He then spies a dying horse, weak from carting weapons, and he goes down to comfort it in its final moments. He lays down the portrait of Joey on the horse's corpse as a tribute.

* In the play, Friedrich disguises himself and deserts the army, reporting himself as dead to continue the deception. He was driven to do this whilst knowing that it would cause massive heartbreak for his wife and daughter.
