Tokyo Rosa may have been a temporary Japanese Navy or Marine code name for the Aviatrix. The name Tokyo Rose is much better applied to the Philippine born Japanese Propagandist who was on trial after the war for subversive actions. She in no way resembled Amelia Earhart, in fact she was an Oriental woman. ( and was bilingual in English and Japanese- as befits a Japanese Spy type). I think the Tokyo Rosa bit in the Brink book - otherwise fairly accurate and historically intelligent, is a minor slip. I read the book, it is one of the better, yet ( on the ground floor) treatments of this mystery laden subject.
