British Bataillon commanders at Waterloo

Gentlemen,

does someone of you know who actually commanded the 42nd Highlanders and the 3rd line bataillon/KGL at Waterloo? I know the commanders from the start of the campaign, but as Lt. Col. Macara from the 42nd was killed at Quatre Bres so there must have been another one in command later. It couldnīt have been Maj. Dick, because he was wounded serverely also. Was there another Major with the 42nd? About the 3rd KGL line I know only it should have been Lt. Col. v. Wissel, but donīt know if he was still in command at Waterloo.

Best regards,

Gunter
