I believe the gent said he was studying at Oxford in the sixties, when he attended lectures by Tolkien. We know that JRR retired in 1959, but I've heard or read that he stood in for his successor now and again.

I noticed that, too. I think it's a bloody cheek!

It's not a reprint - how do you 'reprint' a hand-written letter? It's a bleedin' printout off the net!

Nope; there's no evidence that Tolkien visited the site - there was no reason for him to do so; he and Wheeler communicated by letter. Tolkien was asked to write about the name Nodens; the Silchester ring was not discussed in the Wheeler report.
