Gorgets in the army showed a special function, and thus were only worn when on duty and when performing said function. With the exception of the Regimental Standard Bearer’s Gorget and the Feldherrnhalle Gorget, all gorgets of the army have a luminous paint finish so that they could be seen in the dark.

The Garrison Headquarter (Kommandantur) Gorget was worn by army personnel that was appointed to act as street patrols by military district commanders.

The first pattern, showing a Weimar eagle, was exclusively worn until 1937 by the Berlin Garrison Headquarters. The second pattern, introduced on June 15, 1937, was worn by all garrison headquarters.

The gorget has a matt silver-coloured shield and chain, and a dark field-grey scroll.
