Have you contacted Reed Knight? I recall seeing a couple items in his museum that locked pretty unique, that is in addition to his Model of 1919....
The book sounds VERY interesting. I look forward to buying a copy.

Re the WH Thompsons - will the back of the book have a serial number, production date, sales date, and buyer section like in the back of Mr. Hill's book?
Though I am not the owner of a WH TSMG, I believe such data should and could be included with "the WH history."
Perhaps Board members who are WH TSMG owners would be willing to provide you with their serial numbers, etc.
