Start class[edit]

Don't know how to do a start-class template, but this article needs one, and needs a lot of work. I've added two external links to BOT, and will eventually add one to User:Pawyilee/Sandbox/Royal Thai Survey Department, as they were involved in printing banknotes during WWII, in lieu of Thomas de la Rue and Co.

Stearn, Duncan (2003). "Rise of state-sponsored militarism and socialism". Pattaya Mail. Pattaya Mail, Pattaya. XI (26). Retrieved December 3, 2011. Jones made the point that ‘British advisers still quietly control the finances of Siam and the Siamese money, which has the comic name of “ticul” (about 50c) is linked with sterling. “Does Japan dominate Siam?” I asked a leading Englishman in Bangkok. He laughed quietly: “Have you any Siamese money?” he asked. I drew out a five-ticul note (about 2 dollars 50c). “Read what is printed at the foot of the note,” he commanded. I read, “Thomas de la Rue and Co., London”. With calm confidence he said: “As long as the word ‘London’ stands on that Siamese bill, it is not Japan but another little island which will have the larger say in the Kingdom of Siam.”’

De La Rue resumed printing Thai banknotes after WWII up until 1971. --Pawyilee (talk) 15:59, 3 December 2011 (UTC)
