Sorry, but I disagree.
Do you honestly think that if these guys were sepcial forces that the story would have got out ? If they were on an excercise then they would have communication with a support team at least, and would have arranged their own rescue without the need for the local military to get involved.
To be honest, if I were in that expedition, I would prefer the aid of experienced, military rescue teams than the assistance of the local guys who'm I suspect would struggle to organise a p*@s up in a brewery, plus there would be the inevitable language barrier which in a tense, rescue situation could prove difficult.
Only if the situation became desperate would I ask for their help.

My best guess is this scenario.
A couple of British pot-holers go into the cave about 3 months ago while on holiday.They come across a mineral deposit,say gold,and they take a sample.
They get in touch with British authorities when they get home and show them the sample.A secret scientific expedition is set up to check it out.
If they find it is gold then a British company makes a bid for the apparently worthless land.
Hey presto! Everybody is rich.
I'm not saying it's exactly that but something like it.
Problem is the Mexicans are going to feel pretty upset and they are still angry with the UK for spying on them in the UN a year ago.

They can't be SF's. If that was the case no one would know they where there, unless they where being tracked/followed.
