This formation was heavily engaged during the battle and Von Alten was severly wounded.

The magnificent diorama put on in Hanover at the Bomann Celle Museum is to thank for this wonderful command stand. As I recall the piece was commissioned through Najewitz Modelbau by Jens Najewitz specifically for the museum at the superb rendition of the battlefield of Waterloo to commemorate the 200th anniversary last year.

Lots of uniforms of the Hanoverians, Kings German Legion etc. Unfortunately very little in the way of English translations on the exhibits and even less available in the somewhat limited shop at the museum itself. However it was still very good.
It would be amazing to see the Waterloo Exhibit today though. Maybe next year...
