What so no mention of the Divers just Unsworth?
From what I understand Vernon Unsworth didn't do any Diving but his knowledge of the caves from his hobby caving there was helpful to the rescue.

The others have also received their honours from the Queen.

That is correct. A caver who had detailed knowledge of that particular cave which proved invaluable.

 

In addition to being the one who advised early on calling in the cave diving experts,whom he knew by name and reputation and thus could specifically steer the Thai authorities to,  he helped guide efforts  throughout the operation with his first hand knowledge of the cave.

Correct.

 

About time the news media did some simple research rather than using simple minded writers for these not too complex stories.
