I remember reading somewhere (wish I could remember where) about some bomber command crews having to be careful when visiting American airbases because of their mixed race crews which was unacceptable where they were landing.
They just didn't get the colour bar that they wanted, the white only establishments weren't the places that women went.Black troops were welcome in Britain, but Jim Crow wasn't: the race riot of one night in June 1943
“Black GIs would drink in mixed company in British pubs, to the horror of the white US Army authorities.“
