Just for future reference - does anyone know if a local swift code is needed for the siam commercial bank in the Udon area or will the Bangkok swift code (SICOTHBK) do for the transfer of money from the UK to Thailand?

In making transfers to accounts in Thailand I always include the anglicised name of the account holder (as per pass book), the account number, the address of the account holder and the name and location of the branch where the account is held (usually available on their websites) – in over a decade of transfers, none have gone wrong.
The only minor problem I have had was on one of my very first transfers when it was picked out for an anti-money laundering check (which in my case was quickly and easily resolved).
Note: People familiar with Thai-English and English-Thai translations will probably have noticed that it is not uncommon for minor variations in spelling to occur, this is why I mentioned using the anglicised version of the Thai name exactly as it appears in the pass book and not from any other translation (no matter how official it may be).

Only if transferring within Europe. If transferring from the UK or Europe to Thailand you need SWIFT
