[Commander-in-Chief of the Army 1938-1979 (Thailand)] 5:6 image by Suttipong Phuensaen, 19 Apr 2007

From the Singha Beer source:

The Flag of the Commander-in-Chief of the Army (B.E.2482) [1939 AD]
This flag resembles the "Trairanga", with the base [sic – probably "width"] measuring 5/6 of its length. [Similar to the Naval Jack, removing anchor and with clockwise and more detailed Chakra.]

In the middle stands a Chakkra beneath a yellow crown. The flag was first created in B.E.2479 [1936 AD], but was later changed to the version seen above, following a Royal Decree (Issue 2) concerning flags; issued in B.E.2481 [1938 AD]. The design of the flag currently in use, however, is a little different.

The description seems to imply that the ratio is 5:6. The image however shows a 2:3 flag like the regular Trairanga. In Flaggenbuch 1939 it appears as a 5:6 Trairanga with only a large, centered, white Chakkra, its diameter being 5/6ths of the hoist.

Royal Thai Army command flags during the reign of Rama VI (1910-25)

Commander-in-Chief of the Army

[Marshal 1912-? (Thailand)] image by Miles Li, Jaume Ollé and Eugene Ipavec, 9 September 2013

From the Singha Beer source:

The Marshal's Flag
This is a red flag with the Royal Sceptre crossed by sword in the center, above which stands a flaming Chakkra and the Greater "Mahapichai Mongkut" Crown.

The flag, first made its appearance in 2455 [1912 AD] during the reign of King Mongkut, was used by a Marshal in to Army. Since then, however, use of this flag has been discontinued.

There is some mistake here, since King Mongkut reigned 1855-1868.
Santiago Dotor, 5 Nov 1999

The mistake is that the king who invented Triranga flag in 1912 AD is King Mongkutklao (Rama VI). His father is King Chulalongkorn the Great (Rama V). King Mongkut mentioned in your article is actually his grandfather (Rama IV).

It seems that both Mongkutklao and Vajiravudh are names given to King Rama VI.
