What surprises me is the lack of military photos/ , which you would see in any similar collection of other countries.

Is that your choice or ?

In contrast today we see almost everyone in uniform, passport , election, family photos

The military presence in Siam/Thailand didn't really come into force and consciousness until the 1930's....big time militarism since. Interesting to note, that the first 'real' standing military force was brought to bear by HM King Chulalongkorn - not so for protection regarding the contemporary foreign squabbles {French & British}, but predominately for domestic uses. The regional uprisings, revolts, and assorted movements were quite rife in the 1880's and 1890's. The army and navy grew 10 fold under his reign. Naturally, the modern period of Thai usually is associated with militarism - strong in the 1940's to the present day. Rather paradoxical in it's examination. Buddhism and Militarism.
