History:

John Bush was born in England in the reign of King George III and died in Thailand in the reign of King Edward VII. For almost fifty years he lived in Siam and served two Siamese kings: King Mongkut and King Chulalongkorn. He captained their royal yachts; he served as the royally-appointed Harbour Master of the busy port of Bangkok for thirty years; and in his spare moments he managed the highly-successful Bangkok Dock Company. Small wonder that he was honoured with a Siamese knighthood and given the title of Admiral by a grateful sovereign. His grave in the Protestant Cemetery is marked by a fine obelisk with an inscription composed by King Chulalongkorn himself.
