With inheritance killings there will be more to it.

In this case he wasn't getting enough from his parents & Sheila was getting too much.

That was never changing.

Bamber was an inheritance killer. He testified himself he liked expensive things.

Yeah that's it

I don't agree with ILB that Nevill would never sack Bamber.

This would give Bamber free reign to rob, steal & make no effort at work.

He had to behave and knuckle down. Long term.

Or find another route.

Nevill either knew or suspected Bamber of burning down the caravan shop & robbing caravans. He was not stupid.

He knew he robbed the caravan site.

It was last chance saloon. Bamber didn't think the eventual rewards were worth the time and effort.

I think both children were predominantly spoilt and both tied somewhat to their parents apron strings. It was a family of wealthm for maybe both children it was always a case of " if I mess up, dad ( nevill ) will fork out money to pick up the pieces"

The Bambers had provided a good life, and I think from the other side of things June and Nevill wanted two children in their own mould, regimented.

Unfortunately they got a Shelia and they got a Jeremy


My adoptive parents were told that "If you treat it like one of your own, it will grow to be like you"!!!! -I don't think they were meaning me, in particular, more generalizing- but I believe this to have been the mind set of those organizing adoptions between the end of the war and the early 60's. It was a stricture which often led to great unhappiness and disillusionment for both parents and children.

I couldn't help thinking of that when I read about David McCallum's son. https://www.grunge.com/1404977/tragic-1989-death-david-mccalllum-son/
