From Brian L. Davis' Uniforms and Insignia of the Luftwaffe, London, 1999, vol. 1, pp. 142-143
In May 1938 Adolf Hitler made a state visit to Italy. He was accompanied by the band of the Regiment 'General Goring' - among others. The musicians from this band are seen here performing in front of the Arch of Constantine led by their conductor of music. In the forefront of the photograph is the regimental Schellenbaum, frequently referred to in English as a 'Jingling Johnnie'. Although not a musical instrument they were a feature of all pre-war military bands. Carried by the tallest man in the band they consisted, in the main, of a wooden staff on to which were fitted various ornate objects, such as a large bell. Fitted directly above the large bell was usually a curved metal, eagle-headed crescent, suspended from the beaks of which were large horsehair plumes. This crescent, was in turn surmounted by, in the case of Luftwaffe Schellenbaum, a Luftwaffe eagle and swastika, also in silver-coloured metal. Hung from the talons of the eagle were the silken cords that were affixed to the ends of a short wooden crossbar that carried the Schellenbaum 'Standard'. This Standard was produced in silk, whose colour was appropriate to the Waffenfarbe of the unit to which the band belonged. The Standard cloth was decorated on all four sides with flat silver braid, a thick silver-aluminium twisted cord fringe and on the reverse with the hand-embroidered, in either silver or white cotton, name and number of the Luftwaffe unit, formation or garrison. Being one of the most ornate accessories used by German bands, these Schellenbaum were often purchased by voluntary public subscription and presented to a unit by the inhabitants of a garrison town or city.
