John Bull mending kit

A wonderful tin Archie gave me for my birthday. (found on a stall at a steam rally in Daresbury) Such a lot of information and lists of its uses, it is basically a piece of waterproof cloth you can cut to shape and glue over holes. So well packaged and marketed..makes me feel you could sell anything.

The John Bull Printing Sets are good too. I suppose they used the left over rubber for the repair kits?

Nice scrap metal stuff ! I never thought they could be so interesting and with so much sentimental value.

People in eBay might be looking for such things.
