History: Heading to school on day, Jimmy Watson stopped to rescue an old gypsy lady's cat from a dog, getting the bottom ripped off his trousers for his troubles. The gypsy fixed them with a piece of material cut from a magic carpet, and when Jimmy later wished that he had lived during the time of Drake and the Armada, the patch obligingly took him there.

Comments: Steven Levin wrote in to say "Alan Moore stated in the recent book Heroes and Monsters that he, at one point in the production of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 2, was planning to link the carpet which Jimmy's patch came from to the magic carpet Gulliver Jones used."
