  1. Very nice collection! For what was this medals awarded?
  2. In May the coronation of King Rama X took place. In connection with the ceremony the king awarded 3 new medals. The Coronation medal for King Rama X The King Rama X Royal Cypher medal. The Royal Cypher medal are always awarded in 5 classes. 1. class 3. 4. 5. Class And the King Rama X Rajaruchi medal in Gold and Silver.
  3. It the 5th class of the The Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant. Its a type 2 verison. given out after 1909. Its the wrong etue i think. On Ebay there are prices from 25-50£.
  4. Yes i missed him. But i think its only say "Thailänska medborgaren", Thai citizen, on his line. Next line are "förste Gen, adj hos HM kungan av thailand....." I add him to my list. Thank you! The first in his name, Luang, is not a name its a nobel title in Thailand. I think his name is Sura Narong. The picture are of Luang Sura Narong (left) and Prince Birabongse.
  5. Thank you Johan. It´s really a big job to look thrue all the matriklar and make it searchable. When i looked thrue them for all 'Thai citizens it took me some time and i think i missed some anyway just because it was hard to read the names sometimes. Its easier with the order of Serafime.. there all names in wikiepedia in a list and they are not so many... I really hope you will finnish this project, im very interested in it. I know some people in KMO, Kungl. Maj:ts Orden, and i will ask them if i can go there and look thrue the Matriklar in real , so to say... I would like to finnish my list of thai citizens and try to keep it up to date. After 1974 it becomes more easy because of the reform of the swedish orders. It´s only one order to look at.
  6. The long service medal the king have are the Chakra Mala Medal - Medal for Long Service and Good Conduct (Military and Police). The last medal are the King Rama IX Rajaruchi Medal (Gold Class). The king also have the Red Cross Medal of Appreciation (First Class). But i have never seen him wear it. The medals from the Thai red cross are ranked last in the Thai ODM, Orders Decoration och Medal, system and are given out by the Queen Sirkit.
  7. Hi JohanH As you know its hard to read and understand the wrighting in the Matriklar..... I looked up the commanders in chief of the Royal Thai Navy. The one who was commander in chef in 1965 was Admiral, Prince, Kanchitpon Apakorn between 1964-1966.
  8. Here are the Coronation medal for King RamaX.
  9. Hi As you know it was 4 Grand crosses of the order of the Sword given that date. The two you looking for i think are Admiral Chief of the thai navy Kanjitpol Abhankorn, and General, Suit Suityuthakorn Dagananda, second i command of the Thai Airforce. The other two was General Prapas Charusthuka, Deputy Prime Minister, and Air Marshal Dawee Chullasapya, Deputy Defence Minister. Just for "fun" there where given out other classes of the order of the sword that date.............. 3 = Commander 1cl (KSO1kl) 1 = Commander (KSO) 1 = Knight 1cl (RSO1kl) 9 = Knights (RSO) I made compleat spreadsheats of all swedish orders given to Thai from 1748 to 1979. You can find it on my home page http://www.silvermedaljen.n.nu/svenska-ordnar-utdelade-till-siam/thailand
  10. You are very right. But in Thailand every government employee have the right to wear coronation medals. EVEN they not attended the ceremony.
  11. I dont know of any forigner that been awarded these awards. I think its only swedish citizens that can apply for the awards.
  12. I dont understand what you mean. Are you asking about The Royal Swedish Orders? The awards given out by the Royal Patriotic Society and The Royal society Pro Patria are given to Swedes.
  13. The Royal Patriotic Society are a old swedish society. The Society was founded in 1766. In 1772, the Royal Declaration was issued by the Society's basic rules, after which the Society was called the Royal. (Swedish) Patriotic Society.That medal are still awarded but with the reigning king's portrait on it. The society have a number of awards they are give out. See there home page: https://kungligapatriotiskasallskapet.se/the-royal-patriotic-society/. The bigger medal are from this society. The other society are the Royal society Pro Patria, also founded in 1766. The smaller medal, "För Trohet och Flit", For faithfulness and diligence, was awarded between 1836 and 2005 to those who have been employed by the same employer for a long time or served with the same household or relative. The service for the larger medal was at least 25 years and for the smaler at least 15 years. The medal has been awarded to more than 10,000 people. My great grand father was given the larger medal for his service. Here are there homepage: http://propatria.se/. unfortunately it is not in English.
  14. I think moste forigners who have received these types of medals are royalty. But i have not found any evidence for this. Its an interesting subject to look more into but the information are very hard to find.
