"Are you puzzled by Messrs Johnson, Saddleton and Wyld have kept their compositions of Stedman secret in 1995 until they were pealed? "

Yes, absolutely. From Colin Wyld's perspective, keeping his composition unpublished surely led directly to it *not* being used for the first rung peal of Stedman triples. What did he gain by keeping it secret? I'm sure PABS / Andrew Johnson will correct me if I'm wrong, but if the Wyld comp had been published and in the public domain I'd be a bit surprised if a CUG band would have independently searched for (and soon pealed) a conceptually similar but different composition - that would have seemed poor form.
