    Yes mate, my old canvas brolly which I had as a kid & since given away was the same.
    My late Dad fixed it with large fabric puncture repair patches, when cars & Motorbikes had inner tube tyres & lasted many years afterwards & it's still going strong today I believe. (gave it to a young, extended family member)

          The aquasure looks a better option (wasn't available back in the day)

          I've looked at the link & the neoprene rubber sheet looks just the ticket at £2.85.

          Prob' doesn't include the glue?? or maybe just the stuff in the Tube on its own - IS the repair??

            Those huge Motorbike puncture repair patches are probably not available anymore?? now most tyres are tubeless.
