t's been one month since two Australian divers risked their lives to assist in the international rescue of a Thai football team. Now, Craig Challen and Richard Harris take the plunge into their first dive with their mates since those dramatic events


In a paddock in regional South Australia, a group of mates reunite to share their combined love of a pursuit some might find hard to understand.

An unsuspecting passer-by would never guess what lies beneath the ground here, accessible only through a small rectangular hole hidden next to a cabin.

Today, it is the meeting place for the Wet Mules, a diving group flung into the international spotlight when two of its members were called upon to help with the rescue of a Thai soccer team and their coach.

Two of the Mules, Craig Challen, a retired vet, and medical specialist Richard Harris, have helped to map underground caves around the world, including this one — Tank Cave — near Mount Gambier.

For Challen, the chance to meet up with the Mules and other diving mates to explore an old stomping ground marks a return to normalcy after being placed firmly under the international media spotlight during the Thai cave rescue.
