Prince-Abbot receives awards

The Prince-Abbot has been presented with several commemorative medals of the Royal House of Thailand. They were presented for “outstanding work for the progress of mankind through peace education” by the former Advisor of the President of the Committee for Private Education of the National Assembly.  In Thailand, it is customary for these medals to be worn by members of the civil service and the armed forces.

The medals presented were the Commemorative Medal for the 7th Cycle Birthday Anniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX), 2007; Commemorative Medal on the Occasion of the 6th Cycle Birthday Anniversary of H.M. Queen Sirikit, 2004; Commemorative Medal for the Investiture of H.R.H. Prince Vajiralongkorn as Crown Prince, 1972. Each of the medals was first issued on an earlier date, but this presentation was made in December 2012.
