Persons associated with the late Prince Ernst August of Lippe's Society of the Rose, the San Luigi Orders, the Order of St. Lazarus in the U.S.A., the Royal Yugoslav Order of St. John, and comparable organizations wore similar crosses in the 1970's-80's.  I do not recall the exact format--the eagle may have had two heads then?  Do not recall the name of the troupe that used this particular cross or post-2000 images of individuals wearing it.  Photos appearing in publications issued by the above named entities and the Augustan Society  [do not have at hand now] illustrate this item and an analogous neck cross as worn at comradely events. This perhaps suggests that the insignia represents membership in a 'private' society.  Some such groups choose Insignia quite similar to state decorations...

A Royal Yugoslav badge eagle must double headed be

Point of my post above being that persons associated with so-called 'self-styled' awards wore the type of cross pictured in post one above.  Presumably, birds of a feather stick together.  Or, if you prefer, this item may well be ‘awarded’  by a ‘self-styled’ knightly or chivalric organization. 

Eagle iconography not linked with ‘main stream’ St. Lazarus or San Luigi or Lippe insignia either.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
