are lesser escort barges that accompany and protect the true
Royal Barges during
Royal Barge Procession and
are positioned at the rear end of the flotilla. There are totally seven
such barges. The last one differs from the first six in that the oarsmen
of the seventh and last Reua Saeng wear a white jacket bordered with red
and gold, a red
and a red
rather than the white jacket bordered with blue, a blue pahkaomah with
white dots, blue trousers, and a blue brimless hat trimmed with gold and
with earflaps, as worn by the oarsmen of all other Reua Saeng barges (fig.).
The roof of all the Reua Saeng barges is red with a golden frame in the
form of an elongated quadrangle.
