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.

There was joy and relief in Thailand on Tuesday evening when the final five were freed from the cave after a tricky three-day operation.

"When you see Australians who are modest turn up in these most hard situations around the world and they just do what they believe is the right thing", he said. "My job was to transfer them along", former Navy Seal Chaiyananta Peeranarong told the AFP news agency.

We're just very happy that the boys are out and safe.

I think it was the result of an global team of military and civilian divers working alongside the Thai Navy.

The rescue mission captivated the world after the group was discovered by two British divers on July 2.

They were found 10 days later, huddled on a small, dry shelf just above the water, and divers and other worldwide rescuers plotted the complex mission to rescue the team before more rain came.

The aim was to learn how to "tightly package" each of the boys in order to easily maneuver them through tight passageways and adjust their air supply as needed. What we do is very calculating, very calm.

"We are not heroes", he said.

"We were very relieved that they were all alive but I think at that point we realised the enormity of the situation and that's perhaps why it took a while to get them all out".

Thousands of people have called for Dr Harris and Mr Challen to be given the Cross of Valour, the nation's highest civilian bravery award.

"They are the ones who were responsible for their own morale and really their own safety and without them being in the state they were in we couldn't have done anything".

Sadly just hours after making his way out of the cave, Harris received the heartbreaking news that his father had died.

The Thai Navy SEAL commander said the Royal Thai Navy is always prepared to respond to disasters in the country, stressing his belief in the capabilities of all officials, and thanked for the dedication from all personnel and support from the general public.
