Does anyone know who this is?

Looks too stocky to be Plaek Pibulsongkram.

When I visited Southeast Asia around a year ago, I saw a lot of old WWII photos in their museums. They were quite interesting because Ive never seen them before. The locals were also very hospitable they helped me with my research and setup the area for my metal detecting. I only found old coins but I had a lot of fun. If youre also looking for a hands on treasure hunt with a metal detector, this website should help you pick the right metal detector.
