Established in 1861, this distinctive order is awarded to government officials for services rendered to Thailand for five years. This set was awarded to Admiral Ulysses Grant Sharp, a 4 star Admiral in the US Navy. This admiral has a very long career that spans 1927 - 1968! Notable as a direct descendant of Civil War general and later President Grant. He was a senior officer during the Tonkin Gulf Incident, and was also commander of the Pacific Fleet in 1963. A former San Diego resident, Admiral Sharp died in 2001. These medals were acquired from his family by a local collector and consigned to us.
