Notice (in the photos below) that the bandsmen and other members of the regiment (which was transferred from police to air force six months earlier) still wear their old police uniforms and cuff-titles, on their left sleeves (they were later moved to right sleeves). The only detail added to their uniforms at the time was an air force eagle, above the right breast pocket.

That is the 1938 parade. They're playing Göring's signature march, and their regimental parade march, "Der Jäger aus Kurpfalz".
(What the "Badenweiler-Marsch" was to Hitler and his Leibstandarte, "Der Jäger aus Kurpfalz" was to Göring and his regiment.)

Note: The march played before the parade, during the inspection, is "Pariser Einzugsmarsch".
(The march was used by the Luftwaffe as Präsentiermarsch der Flieger, i.e. flyers' presentation march.)

Below, a photo from the parade, showing the regimental Schellenbaumträger in the foreground.

Yugoslav Minister of Education Stevan Ćirić (grey-haired) and Ambassador Ivo Andrić (with glasses - future Nobel prize winner in literature), accompanied by Generalleutnant Ernst Seifert, during the wreath-laying at the Memorial in Berlin. The occasion was complemented with a performance by the band of the "General Göring" Regiment.
