The First World War Volunteers Memorial in Bangkok commemorates the nineteen (non-combat) casualties of the 1,300-man Siamese Expeditionary Force sent to France by King Rama VI in 1918. The inscriptions on the monument are translated from the Thai, and the dates and locations of death of the nineteen casualties are mapped and analysed.
