This memorial was built to commemorate thr Battle of Koh Chang, a naval encounter between the Thai and French navies in January 1941.
It was a glorious victory for the Thai navy – if you happen to be Thai, or a glorious victory for the French navy – if you happen to read other reports and classify the winner as the one who didn’t lose any ships or men in the brief battle.
