About 2,000 Royal Thai Navy sailors lined up in a formation that spelled out “Long live the Queen” to mark her 84th birthday.
Vice Adm. Rattana Wonsaroj led the 1,984 troops dressed in khaki, blue, and white colors to form the English language script July 25 at the Sattahip Naval Base parade grounds.
Rattana recalled that HM Queen Sirikit accompanied HM the King to Sattahip in 1966 when he placed the first navy flag after sailing from Hua Hin.
The parade was organized to show loyalty to HM the Queen on the occasion of her 84th birthday on Aug. 12. All involved wished her renewed health and a long life.
