    Re: Charting of Japanese Mandated Islands in reference to Earhart
    From: Gary LaPook

    And to Guam which was within the lines on the chart delineating the Mandate.

    "In theory, yes, but did they? I am not aware of any sorties by the USN testing this theory in the mandated islands back then although, of course, there was naval traffic between the Philippines and Hawaii. And it would have been a big risk testing the limits. Imagine sailing a fleet into the mandated islands to challenge freedom of the seas in 1937."
