Hanoverian Regiments 1789
  Source search

In the late eighteenth century in India, under the threat of attack by the French during the American War of Independence, the East India Company sought the help of two regiments of the British army. The English War Office was unable to accede to these requests, so the Company appealed to King George III, as Elector of Hanover, to send them two regiments of Hanoverian soldiers. To this, he agreed and sent to India the 14th and 15th Regiments of the Hanoverian Army.
