I've found a better picture of the Order of the
Elephant here

Its only vaguely like the MC cover.

It was this order that Flashman had, although he was
never actually awarded it, rather he kept it in "Royal
Flash" (which is a retelling of "Prisoner of Zenda")
when he fled. He caused considerable discomfort to
Danish diplomats in London when he took to wearing it
(and listing in in his "Who's Who" entry) as there was
no record of him ever actually recieving one. Prince
Carl Gustaf, who's decoration it was, could never
admit to the circumstances of its loss.
