      Look at picture of man, is that US insignia on his collar?? diplomat credentials??
    2. alison64, 5 years ago
      Hi Dave I have no idea , I did see that but the foreign writing has thrown me
    3. southjerseybob southjerseybob, 5 years ago
      I believe Thailand.
    4. southjerseybob southjerseybob, 5 years ago
      It's not a passport. Maybe a drivers license?
    5. alison64, 5 years ago
      Hi Bob I have no idea , he does have US on his collar , I need to try and get this translated
    6. Dizzydave Dizzydave, 5 years ago
      Looks like Thailand ?
    7. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      It is Thai:

    8. Chrisnp Chrisnp, 5 years ago
      Yep, Thai - now for the fun part. I THINK Thailand uses the Buddhist calendar, and I believe those last lines are dates. So...98-99 would be about 1954-55. The Uniform seems to be of a US Army Ordinance Officer, but he has minimized the insignia on his uniform to just the essential.
    9. Chrisnp Chrisnp, 5 years ago
      Uniform would match that '54-'55 era
    10. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      2498 - 543 = 1955.
      2499 - 543 = 1956.

      The dates are April 21 1955 & 20 April 1956, I think.
    11. alison64, 5 years ago
      Thank you all very much , it does look like thai , so would he have been living in Thailand to get this ?
    12. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      A diplomatic position ?? Military Attaché ???
    13. alison64, 5 years ago
      Can you work his name out ?
    14. Nicspawee Nicspawee, 5 years ago
      Well,It's my language
      I am Thai :)))
      It's a very old driving permission book of police department.
      In Thailand we don't use BC year
      This year for us is 2559
      So 98 in the book,should be the year 2498 (about 61 years ago)
      His name is Mr.John (something,I couln't figure it out)
      He is an American
      Btw,he was a police (from the position they wrote down before his name)
    15. Nicspawee Nicspawee, 5 years ago
      Ok,his name is Mr.John M.Oskent (I am not sure for his last name because
      In thailand people will write down what they pronounce
      And our English prononciation is not good LOL
      In the book he was 47 years old.

      I hope this information can help :)
    16. alison64, 5 years ago
      Nicspawee thank you so very much , there is another page with writing on , could you help me with it , I will add a photo :)
    17. Nicspawee Nicspawee, 5 years ago
      Oh,I am so sorry!!!
      I just saw you had added another page

      Ok,that page is talking about
      How to renew this driving permission book
      The first section is the date that he renewed (they used the old thai language,it would say "the date that they allow him to renew)
      7 June 2499 (7June 1956)

      The second section is about the exspiration date of this book
      6 June 2500 (6 June1957)

      The last section shows the signature of the person who authorized this permission book!

      I hope this translation can help!
