8AF 9AF band markings on P47 43-44

Hi all

Just a quick question.

We know the P47s of the 8AF 9AF carried recognition bands in 1943 44

These were white on Olive Drab and Black on natural aluminium. Areas covered were half of the cowling ring and bands to the fin and rudder.

The question is, when was these markings discontinued? When D-Day markings were applied (3rd June onwards) or even much later?
