Royal Thai Navy Deputy Commander Adm Narongpon Na Bangchang presided over the ceremony leading Navy officials, residents and tourists to enjoy the maritime show.

Every year, Thailand National Defence Volunteer Day is held to honour Thao Suranari or Khun Ying Moe who helped defend Nakhon Ratchasima from Weingchanv (Lao) in 1827. Since that day, March 4 has been known as Thailand National Defence Volunteer Day.

Today’s event included a Navy Fleet Review led by the Navy vessel Luang Buri, patrol vessels and commercial fishing boats and the celebrations included a marine rescue show and more.

Awards were also presented to defence volunteers and officers in recognition of the work and help they have given.

Adm Narongpon said, “I am glad to see people come together to pay homage to our heroes/heroines that fought the enemy and protected our Kingdom. We’ve learned from them that we must stay together in critical times to help each other.”
