The Royal Thai Naval Academy was established by His Majesty the King Chulalongkorn ( Rama V ) in 1898. He officially opened the Academy on 20 November 1906. Originally located on the royal yacht Maha Chakri and some other boats donated by HM the King, the Academy later moved to Wangderm Palace in Thonburi in the compound of the present headquarters of the Royal Thai Navy, then to Sattahip, and finally ended at its current location in Samut Prakan in 1952.

Seeing this took me back to the time I entered the Royal Navy at HMS Ganges in Suffolk in 1962,  at a place called  Shotley Gate. It was much the same guards , impressive layout, rural surroundings and next to the sea or river.
