Foreign Officers in British Service

Reading the Gloire et Empire #69 - Operations in Northern Europe 1809, I learned that general Dörnberg was Hessian, former officer of Prussian army 1806 then Westfalian army until 1809, when is tentative insurrection against Jerome failed.

He then entered british service in Brunswick corp, and later KGL, volunteered in Russian Army 1812-1813, but was back in British Army 1815 in Belgium, where he set up a spy net, and commanded 3rd cavalry brigade at Warterloo, including 1st and 2nd KGL light dragoon, and 23rd light dragoon.

This means that some foreign, staunch anti-bonapartist officer, neither British nor Hanoverian, could be commissioned in british army (and others), to command foreign, but also british units.
