Gerd von Rundstedt often wore a uniform with unusual collar insignia compared with other general officers. von Rundstedt advanced to general officer in 1927 but retired in 1938. Upon his retirement, Hitler made him an Honorary Colonel-in-Chief of Infantry Regiment 18, von Rundstedt’s old infantry unit. Almost immediately von Rundstedt returned to active service but thereafter routinely wore the silver collar insignia of Infantry Regiment 18 rather than the red and gold collar insignia of a general officer.
