  • Description

    KING BHUMIBOL ADULYADEJ OF THAILAND WAS 40 THIS WEEK, AND THE OCCASION WAS MARKED WITH A PARADE IN THE CAPITAL, BANGKOK.

    THE PARADE OF THE ROYAL GUARD WAS STAGED IN THE ROYAL PLAZA IN BANGKOK. KING BHUMIBOL, WITH QUEEN SIKRIT AT HIS SIDE, DROVE SLOWLY PAST TO INSPECT HIS MEN.

    LATER THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE THAI ARMY, GENERAL PRAPASS CHARUSATHIARA, OFFERED HIS MEN'S BIRTHDAY GREETINGS, AND LED THEM IN THE OATH OF ALLEGIANCE.

    AFTER A 21-GUN SALUTE, THE KING WARNED THE GUARD TO BE ALERT TO EXTERNAL AGGRESSION AGAINST THAILAND IN REFERENCE TO INCREASED GUERILLA ACTIVITY IN CENTRAL THAILAND.

    THE AREA IS UNDER MARTIAL LAW, REQUIRING ITS PEOPLE TO NOTIFY THE POLICE OF THEIR MOVEMENT, TO CARRY IDENTIFICATION PAPERS AND TO DECLARE ANY STOCKS OF FOOD.
