Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

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).
