Vice Adm. Sutthinant Sakulpuchapong, commander of the Naval Engineering Command and director of Phra Chulachomklao Naval Repair Station, joined Rear Adm. Wittaya Laorjan, director of Mahidol Adulyadej Naval Shipyard, Nov. 11 to lead 400 sailors in their dress whites to publicly mourn His Majesty the late King.
The group first sang the Royal Anthem and observed a moment of silence before lining in the shape of the Thai numeral 9 in front of HTMS Narathiwat. The formation was photographed for posterity.
Sutthinant said sailors, shipyard workers and their families were grateful for the late monarch’s boundless kindness and generosity during his 70-year reign and wanted to show their appreciation.
