Since when were was that scribble attributed to Sheila by a handwriting expert?

I have no idea. But people are free to suggest it was written by Jeremy if that's what they suspect.

I can't recall when it was first floated here, but it may not be out of the question that 'here' is where it originated?

A while ago, I compared the writing in these letters to a letter Sheila wrote in 1982.

The words from the 1982 letter are on the left and words from the notes in question are on the right.

I don't think it was here. I think the CT went direct to the Guardian.

Well just who else do you think could have written them Zoso?
For me,if Bamber is guilty of the act then this is another thing that falls into the category of what Bamber knew about but didn't use to his advantage.The same category as the blue bible and also the Aga burns,pending acceptance.Maybe even a seperate suicide note as mentioned by Stan Jones.

What I mean is,if JB was the killer then the above items were planted by him to implicate Sheila,I suppose as a kind of an alibi of sorts.The Aga burns it seems, was an accidental occurrance,unplanned nor intended by the killer.But nonetheless,if Bamber was the killer then he knew that Nevill was lying against the Aga and therefore knew what caused the burns.After all,if JB didn't brand Nevill with the rifle or poker surely it wouldnt have taken him long to work out what DID burn his back.

So lets just take a look at what a guilty JB did to point to Sheila as the killer.
Firstly, in preparation for the shooting,he wrote farewell letters from Sheila to her birth mother,but in an almost illegible and incoherent manner,but obviously to be seen as a written confession from Sheila with just enough information of her intention to kill the boys and then comitt suicide.

It would be interesting to know if the paper was a match to any of Sheila's note books,if not,then it could be claimed that the farewell letters were indeed planted by Bamber.Although I suppose he could have pinched a few sheets in the days leading up to the shooting.

Anyway,thats getting away from the point.So,next we have Bamber planting the bloodied Bible with finger prints,possibly with a suicide note in it,the one mentioned by Stan.
Point being,that Bamber seemed to be oblivious to the importance of these exhibits until documentation about them was carelessly disclosed by the police.
And as Bill has pointed out,the police hid the Bible and letters from the defence before Bambers trial and then tried to have them destroyed in 1996 Surely this proves how important these exhibits could have been in proving JBs innocence? Why else hide them from the defence?

No,Bambers obvious ignorance of the letters, the Bible, and the Aga burns go a long way in convincing me of his innocence.
Could JB really have written and planted those farewell letters? Someone surely did!
OK,you could understand Bamber planting a suicide note,but farewell letters from Sheila to her mother?
Really,what would-be killer would have thought that up? And as Bill pointed out,the letters only mention Sheila's intention of killing herself and the boy's.Why on earth would JB put that in a letter??
No,you must see how utterly unbelievable it is to think that JB wrote Sheila's farewell letters.
This is obviously why they had to be hidden then have an order taken out to destroy them.
Is doubt of his guilt creeping back in yet Zoso?

There is no suicide note.

Intially it was in June's bible. However the house keeper said June used to put hand written notes there. No surprise there. It's June's bible.

Now Sheila is supposed to have left it in a room where she didn't even committ suicide.

The farewell letters were left on Sheila's bedroom table Adam ,there is documentation of this.
The suicide letter mentioned by Stan is a seperate item.

The -so called- 'suicide' notes are fabrication. June put handwritten notes in her bible as aides de memoire for her bible classes. It's not impossible that the "Sheila note" had its inception right here courtesy of one of JB 's supporters.

Whatever notes or writings that were within the pages of the Bible have never been disclosed Jane.as well as the Bible of course.
Why? If the writings were by June,why hide them? You know this has to be seen as very suspicious.
Lets just face it Jane,there has to be doubt of Bambers guilt.
