Before leaving Thailand, one of the members of the British dive team that helped save 12 boys and their coach trapped in a flooded cave sent some friendly words of advice to the recuperating rescuees.

"I wish them a speedy recovery so we can play football together again". "While they were inside the cave it rained, water flowed in and everyone took off", Banpot said.

Master Sergeant Derek Anderson, a rescue specialist with the US Air Force, told the Associated Press divers practiced their action plan in a swimming pool on local children that were about the same height and weight as the boys inside the cave.

The team became captured within a cave in Thailand on June 23 and survived for 18 long days before being miraculously rescued by a fearless group of worldwide divers. The boys, aged 11 to 16, had to dive for part of their journey out before they were put on green plastic toboggan-like stretchers and carried, at times through steep, rocky tunnels, with ropes, strung overhead. Anderson said one of the most crucial pieces of equipment was the positive pressure diving masks, which would expel water from the mask if one of the boys panicked.

She said her son, nicknamed Tun, said the boys' 25-year-old soccer coach Ekapol "Ake" Chanthawong, told them to meditate to ease their hunger and save their energy.

The group survived by drinking water that dripped off the stalactites and the cave walls, rescue officials said.

Local military, police, and the Thai Navy SEALs worked alongside thousands of local and global volunteers, divers, doctors, and experts to aid in the urgent rescue mission. "The 4 Brits then did further supply dives to the soccer players, the coach and the four Thai Navy Seals which allowed them to prepare and sustain themselves for the rescue ultimately".

He and other British divers who aided in the rescue returned to Heathrow on Friday morning.

"We're here really looking at this as a movie that could inspire millions of people across the globe", Scott said.

Describing the moment he located the children deep underground, he said: "We were very pleased and very relieved that they were all alive". It's very calm, it's quite the opposite ... I think it was the result of an worldwide team of military and civilian divers working alongside the Thai Navy.

Dr Richard "Harry" Harris had a great relationship with the boys while they were trapped in the cave system.
