The Anglo-Thai Society was very active in 2009. On 15 June 2009, David Fall CMG, former British Ambassador to Thailand, was formally appointed as Chair of the Anglo-Thai Society. Special thanks went to the efforts of our former Chair Mr Kevin Thorn for all the hard work and commitment he provided during his time with the society.
