I know these were applied for D-Day but when? Were they done in a hurry the day(s) before? Were they to an exact specification or size? When did they generally start to remove them or were they just not applied to new aircraft as they reached squadrons after a certain date?

Many thanks in advance.

I've seen some photos were the stripes were REALLY badly done and some where the white paint has run and dripped. There are also others where the white stripes on the upper surfaces had either weathered badly (possibly as a result of using lime whitewash), or had been deliberately dirtied as a camouflage measure.
