Recommended for the Pour le Merite

Are there any examples of German WWI ground trooper officers recommended for the Pour le Merite but didn't get the award? I know of one named Hermann Balck.

3 x submitted to the Pour-le-mérite, but the revolution prevents the already promised award (Otto von Stülpnagel).
