As you may recall I wrote a paper on the “Easy slide rule” for one of the IM meetings in which you subsequently unraveled the mysterious “Points” scale devised by a Captain A.C. Chew. I did a little research on him and presented this in the appendix of the paper
Apart from the one book titled
“The Slide Rule, Logarithms, & c....” that was published in 1915, he earlier wrote five (5) other
· The Gunners Pocket Book (1892?)
· The Battery or Company Orderly’s Book (1896)
· The Volunteer Attendance & Squad Book (1900)
· The Militia and Volunteer Garrison Gunner (1905)
· Q.F. & Heavy Gun Drills (1905)
This gentleman is probably worthy of further investigation and documentation!

Curt Herzstark's autobiography (written in German, English translation available from the OS) I think ticks some of the boxes. I know it's not exactly about SRs, but close enough perhaps.
