Broomstick information

Before September, 1997


Means of transport

Ted Tonks: "I've got to say, Dirk, I'm surprised to run into you. Pleased, but surprised. Word was that you'd been caught."
Dirk Cresswell: "I was. I was halfway to Azkaban when I made a break for it. Stunned Dawlish, and nicked his broom. It was easier than you'd think; I don't reckon he's quite right at the moment. Might be Confunded. If so, I'd like to shake the hand of the witch or wizard who did it, probably saved my life."
Ted Tonks and Dirk Cresswell while on the run from the Death Eater-controlled Ministry of Magic[src]
