Phraya Songsuradet (Deva Bandhumasena)

Phraya Songsuradej (Thai: พระยาทรงสุรเดช) (12 August 1891 – 1 June 1973, common name Deva Bandhumasena) was a Thai military officer. As a cadet he studied military science in Imperial Germany, and was a leading member of the senior army officers responsible for the Siamese coup d'état of 1932.

He was exiled to Indochina in January 1939 following a rift with the Prime Minister Plaek Phibunsongkhram.
