Nearly three dozens children from Thailand’s strife-torn southern provinces learned the history of the Royal Thai Navy during a field trip to Sattahip.

The 35 Muslim and Buddhist kids from Narathiwat, Yala and Pattani provinces visited the Navy Museum at Prince Chumphon Camp June 12. The Ruam Jai Thai excursion was the fifth such pilgrimage organized.

Rear Adm. Wetveera Throngworawith said the program tries to put forth a positive image of the Navy for the youths, who will be the leaders of that troubled area in the future.
