If my memory is serving me correctly, Lt. Col. Henry Blake's wife was called Mildred for the first couple episodes (I think) but was afterwards called Lorraine. Col. Potter's wife was indeed Mildred, though.

Another picture egg can be found in the early episodes. If you see Colonel Blake's desk, he has a pictures of his kids. These are the same pictures that were used in the mash movie as Trapper John's kids.

SirBob is right, Col. Blake's wife was named Mildred in the first few episodes, but then it later changed to Lorraine.

They are both right. I have been re-watching entire series in season two Col. Blakes wife is having a baby and when radar calls the hospital for him they ask about Mildred Blake, in later episodes; the one i remember best is where she sent henry a letter basically saying if he needed to stray she understood. At first he is like wow what a great lady then he's thinking wait she probably feels guilty for cheating herself.(funny thing is he seemed to be constantly cheating on her) They refer to her as Lorraine. Col. Potters wife was always called Mildred as far as I know.

I know how to end this eternal argument! Lt. Col. Henry Blake's wife was Lorraine Mildred Blake. Let's just agree on this.
