A very sad response from the pilot whoever it was, shame on you.Mrs Burgess and her sisters, Penelope Montford, of Auckland, and Australian-based Daphne Marshall, gifted Nicholas' medals and other memorabilia to Canterbury Museum in 2002. She said the move was sparked by terse comments to Mrs Burgess' daughter at a Warbirds over Wanaka show. "One bloke told her she couldn't have a ride in one of the warplanes unless she was someone special. "She said 'well my great uncle won the VC' and he called her all the names under the sun, because he didn't believe her. "So we thought 'right, all the stuff in the bottom drawer has to go to the museum'," Mrs Burgess said.
