Australian 'odd fellows' seem lame compared to their American fellows, anyone have a banner or the masks they used behind locked doors?

One in Melbourne at the Richard Berry's shop in the 1970s and one in Tasmania owned by George Burrows. My own material is from the archive of Ray Norman's grandfather - H. J. Bower who was an active member of the Mullumbimby Lodge, below.

All-seeing eye, the sun and death symbols seem universal . . .
