The awards which are given every year in Britain commemorate the unsung heroes of Britain. On Mondy night, five of the Thai cave divers who were part of British Cave Rescue Team that had aided in the internationally watched rescue operation were given Outstanding Bravery awards.
The 12 Thai boys and their coach who had been stuck inside the Tham Luang cave network in Northern Thailand for 17 days owe their lives to the divers. At the ceremony, audiences witnesses the heart-warming exchange between the boys and their saviours. The five awardees include John Volanthen, Rick Stanton, Jason Mallinson, Chris Jewell, Josh Bratchley and Connor Roe.
Many on social media shared images from the moving ceremony on social media.
TV doesn’t get more moving than this: these divers risked their lives to bring the boys back to their families.
