There where some, the most Common was before the war, SS-VT officers who where transfered to the WH but also during the war.

Best regards
Waffen-SS, SS-TV, KZ/KL SS-Pz.A.A.

Werner Hörnicke, who had won the RK with the 1.SS-Inf.Brigade (mot.), is probably is most well known transfer from the WSS to the Heer.
