In 1986, Rex and Rod Cadman purchased a Jeep for £1500 from a car dealer in Ramsgate as a ‘fun toy’ for the summer. That same year, Rod bought a WWII A26C Douglas Invader and a GMC. In 1987, Rex joined the IMPS and in 1989 was asked to join the committee and in this capacity became involved with Beltring for the first time. Rex is now primary organiser for the War & Peace Show. Rex and Rod continued to collect WWII vehicles, and today they own in excess of 150, from bicycles to tanks, representing Great Britain, the USA, the USSR and Germany. (Source: WarAndPeaceShow).
In April 1999 the remains of four Churchill tanks were unearthed at Arpinge in Kent, England. These vehicles turned out to be 3in Gun Carriers, of which only 50 such vehicles were ever made. Bovington Tank Museum collected the most complete vehicle whilst the Cadman Brothers recovered the other three. (Source: Armour in Focus).

This is the most complete of the three Gun Carriers in the collection but is still little more than a wrecked hull. Despite the poor condition of the vehicles Rex Cadman has said that it would be possible to perform a cosmetic restoration of this vehicle using parts from the other two. (Source: Armour in Focus).
