"The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you." for me, but I'm guessing it's this link in the newsletter that only came to me later http://www.vulcantothesky.org/news/755/82/Captain-Eric-Winkle-Brown.html

A member of what?  I'm a member of the club as well as of this forum, although I had terrible trouble getting access in the first place.

There's also a Radio 2 interview from 2014, it seems that he was also instrumental in helping unmask Himmler when he was on the run;
