My Pride

My Pride
เราภูมิใจที่มีส่วนในการขุดค้นเงินเหรียญต่างๆ ที่มีพระรูปของพระบาทสมเด็จพระเจ้าอยู่หัวขึ้นมาจากใต้พื้นดินเพื่อให้พ้นจากการเหยียบย่ำไปมาของผู้คน แม้เป็นงานไม่ยิ่งใหญ่ แต่ความภูมิใจติดตัวเราตลอดไป........ My searching is not just a hunting treasure covered underneath, but I’m also proudly searching for Thai coins with the portrait of His Majesty the King on one side. His Majesty the King is regarded as the highest respectful institution of Thailand. The coins should not be underground so that the people step on them. They should be recovered. Even my work is just a small job, I’m proud to retrieve them from dirt.

Starting Metal Detecting


I and some of my staff were invited by one of my former students to visit her family on a summer holiday at Ban Phe of Rayong, east of Thailand. I was introduced to her father, Mr. Siaw. I later was told that he resigned from Royal Air Force officer post, at Kampaengsaen Air Force base years ago. He and his family moved to this town and run a near-beach sea-food restaurant. He helps his wife’s cooking work in the day time and goes detecting at night time as his hobby.
He introduced me to get used with his favorite Fisher CZ-20 detector. I had never seen metal detector before. It was my first experience to touch it since I have never heard about it, either. He has been detecting in different beaches for years. He also took me to the beach in front of his place and we went into the water. He showed me things he got from the sea beach and underwater. I suddenly was interested in the amazing device. After the holiday finished, I came back home and kept searching for the detectors information, with different brand names. I want to get a good, but cheap, one. I finally made decision to buy a second hand one. The cost was not cheap, but the quality is okay. The detector was the used Fisher CZ-20. It belonged to Mr. Siew’s friend who wanted move to other town and needed some urgent cash.
The manual of CZ-20 was printed out from internet and I read how the detector works, how to detect metal objects and how to cope with problems while going detecting.
One year later, at the moment, I can control the machine but I have not got things much. Coins are the main items that I always got.
Silver rings are second list of finds. Only one gold ring I got from Cha-Am beach. Anyway, I still keep trying to search the lost treasures. Luck is coming, hopefully. If you see someone’s walking on one of the beautiful beaches in Thailand. One of them might be me. Say hello to me sometimes.
