  Reua Tamruat (last police barge)

 

Thailand

 

 

Reua Tamruat are police escort barges in the Royal Barge Procession. Their outside hull is painted black, without any pattern, and the bow is rather low. Like the other two, it also has a red roof with a black frame in the form of a quadrangle. It differs from the other two by its Thai number (), which is painted in white on the bow, and by the dress of the oarsmen, who wear a white jacket bordered with with red and gold, a red pahkaomah, and a red brimless hat trimmed with gold and with earflaps, rather than the vivid blue uniform.
