Siam 1937

The following 4 reports are as decent as I can make it. I had some issues sorting the last two players' reports and finding the various inputs.

One player seems to have financed the building of a "private companys" infrastructure via sales and transfers and then transferred those assets to Siam. So it's possible that I got it right..and possible Siam picked up a free dock. I think it was paid for.

I did not track the aegis contributions on a per-Q basis, nor who was sending what to extend the dock in Phuket.

Siam, in general, focuses on building up a minewarfare fleet, a large torpedo boat contingent (aiming for 8 squadrons of 12, almost there) and conducting sweeping refits of all older vessels.

For a caretaker effort, I think I leave the nation better rounded and with less "catchup" to do overall.

The final post contains the new and refurbished vessels' SS.
