On a serious note ( just recalled this ) , I remembered last year and The Thai Military that attended, one guy made a small dig at not having The Thai Flag flying, as per protocol, if other Flags used.
During the construction of the Burmese railway more Thai's died than allied pow's, there is a large presence of Thai military at both Kanchanaburi services.

Got this info from Australian Military Attache in Bangkok, hope it assists etc

' The ANF at an ANZAC Day service in a foreign country should be flown in the preeminent position, i.e from the left as the crowd looks at it. The NZ flag should be to the right of that, and then Thailand (or any other host nation).

If, however, one flagpole is taller than the others, this should be in the centre (preeminent position) with the NZ flag to the left and the host nation to the right (as the crowd looks at it).

The ANF (and NZ and host nation’s flag) should be flown at half mast prior to the service, then raised to the mast head on the playing of Reveille after the Last Post. Should be raised slowly so that it reaches the mast head as Reveille is finishing.

Please refer to the defence website below for further guidance. Hope this helps.

that is if it is an Australian hosted service....home team gets the advantage, so to speak. hence the highest / center pole.. (if it was a kiwi hosted service it would have advantage position...) someone has to be home team..

AB, sorry....no meals will be cooked that day from the menu as the staff will be preparing food from early morning till early afternoon. I might add, Birmingham John, a keen rugby follower has made a cash donation (4000B) for food and a few drinks for the morning, many thanks John.

Just when you have the food menu right for the day, something else pops up. Five kgs (11 lbs) of beef is being corned at the moment and cooked on Monday for Tuesday. About 10-12 kg of BBQ chicken and pork with salads will be available.

Then the other shocker comes (besides Birmingham Johns donation)......Jimmy from Udon Gourmet Meats on Nittaya Rd drops by for a few beers at the bar Thursday afternoon and throws a 7kg leg of ham on the table ( WTF) and says thats for Tuesday, again many thanks Jimmy and Udon Gourmet Meats.

Udon is a great place and with wonderful people around, what else would you wish for....oh yeah the beach with rolling surf and white pointers, that would set if off.

So we will have some nibblies available then, after the service, the only day in Oz where they turn a blind eye for gambling, Two-up,Two-up is a traditional Australian gambling game, involving a designated "spinner" throwing two coins or pennies into the air.

Could you please confirm the time for the ANZAC Day service please.

Is there any ability to organise a tuk tuk after from the new location.
