HELP! Attic Knee Wall...???

SORRY...I CAN'T GET THE PICT'S TO SHOW OR THE LINKS TO WORK...if you're so inclined please copy and paste...(or PM me how to fix this)

Hey gang here's my dilemma...with winter coming on fast...and my electric bills last winter through the roof ( no pun intended ) I started to examine my insulation situation in my 55+ yr old 1.5 story war time home, I started with the knee wall area...and this is what I found...and here is where I begin to need help:

This is the knee wall (KW) door in my master bedroom:

The KW door open:

As you first glance left in the KW area of the attic:

As you look right to the other end:

The actual insulation on the KW on the right hand side:

A piece of the attic floor cut out with the livingroom ceiling below (contained some form of what appeared to be loose fill insulation):

{CLOSER} A piece of the attic floor cut out with the livingroom ceiling below (contained some form of what appeared to be loose fill insulation, that is the actual ceiling of the living room under the loose fill, no vapour barrier):
