From the Achieves of the Bedford Alchemist Society:
One Hundred years ago today the Bedford Alchemist Society procured its first Flying Carpet.





"January 24th  1916, Alchemist First Class Oswald Brooksby, watches as a member of the historic Order of Ottoman Magi put the flying carpet through its paces. It is expected that this is the first transfer of magical objects from Constantinople. With great excitement we hope it will be one of many."




Sadly the pact between The Bedford Alchemy Society and the Order of Ottoman Magi was broken in 1923 with dissolving of the Ottoman Empire.
