Many thanks for the links :) I have been more and more interested about any information regarding the Franco-Thai War.
There's almost no information on it. I will do my best to translate this using Google. Vichy already had their hands full fighting off the British but then to Have Thailand invade their colony?? So weird.

Many prayers here in the US are going out Belgium. Take care of yourself.
