Default Pipe Major Thomas Pollock, Cameronians

I am looking for information about P/M Thomas Pollock. He was born in or around 1892 and he died in 1943. According to some newspapers he was P/M of the 5th and 5/8th Bn Cameronians during the 1920s and 1930s.
Was he the composer of the tune "5th Cameronians Welcome Home"?
In an old post in this forum I read that he "survived Gallipoli and went on to re-enlist and serve quite a career." - does this mean that he was a Pipe Major already during WW1?
I am in particular interested to learn when (year from-to) he was P/M in the Cameronians (and later in the 57 Searchlight Regiment R.A. when the 5/8th Bn was converted to Artillery?)
Thank you for your help.

Do you have the tune? I have it somewhere at home and will be looking for it this weekend. If I recall he was the composer.
My gt grandfather was a piper in the 5th Cameronians and was wounded on the Somme in later July 1916 - survived but that put him out of the war.
