if we take the initials of these men, HWMBA, we're left with DIYDTYTYCCITFTBWRTAHTDNY which could also be the initials of other spies or suspected spies, and the key is to put them in order?
My reasoning for this is "root out" tells us to look for these people, "et al" means people other than those listed, and "initialism" means we just need their initials
My only concern with this is that this is taking the message from the Word Search and applying it to the You Don't Say puzzle, and there isn't really any indication that we're meant to do that. Even in the Vault,
Referring here to the day side I think, the 29 character EYE padlock?
And whilst I agree with thebardess that this particular padlock's 29 characters might have nothing to do with You Don't Say, we're just casting around for anything which helps solve this padlock. And it's attractive that we have a set of characters here that just happens to be 29 long, and we have the unused harold wilson bit from the crossword/wordsearch....
....it's all a reach I agree, but up to this point we have no better ideas to work on.
