I spotted your typo DelBoy while working my way through the Larkhall War Memorial, I came across MUNGO DYMOCK and have this information:

MUNGO DYMOCK, Pte 5366, 1st Bn Cameron Highlanders, Died of Wounds on 20 Nov, 1914

Mungo was born on 1st May 1880 at 10 Anderson Street, Motherwell.
His parents were Thomas Dymock, a master joiner, and Christina Dalziel who were married at West Calder, on 23 Dec 1875.

In the 1881 census Mungo (age 11 months) was living with his family at 10 Anderson Street, Motherwell.
In the 1891 census Mungo (age 10) was living with his parents and siblings at Calder Street, Motherwell.
In the 1901 census Mungo (age 20 and an architect’s apprentice) was living with his parents and siblings at 26 Calder Street, Motherwell.

On 17 Dec 1909, Mungo, now age 29 and a journeyman joiner, married Elizabeth Davidson, age 30 of Sandford Cottage, 63 Muir Street, Larkhall, at Larkhall. His address at the time was 63 Merry Street, Motherwell.

On 4th Apr 1910 a daughter Elizabeth Craig Dymock was born at 31 Airbles Street, Motherwell.

In the 1911 census Mungo and his wife and daughter Elizabeth were living at 31 Airbles Street, Motherwell.

On 5th Nov 1911 a daughter Christina Dalziel Dymock was born at 31 Airbles Street, Motherwell.

He enlisted as Pte 5366 1st Bn Cameron Highlanders and entered France on 14 Aug 1914.

On 20 Nov 1914 Mungo ‘Died of Wounds’ aboard the Hospital Ship “St Andrew” while being brought back to the UK.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) website shows that Mungo was buried at Netley Military Cemetery, Hampshire, England.

Mungo is also commemorated at the Scottish National War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle with the names of all fellow Scots who have died in War.

His Medal Index Card (MIC) shows that James was awarded the 1914 Star Medal and Clasp, the Victory Medal and the British War Medal.

His “Soldier’s Effects” Record shows that his widow Elizabeth received his Outstanding Pay of £5/5/6 and a War Gratuity of £5/-/-.

On 2nd Jan 1917 his daughter Elizabeth age 8, died of meningitis at Sandford Cottage, Muir Street, Larkhall.

On 16 Jul 1937 his daughter Christina, now age 25 of Sandford Cottage, 63 Muir Street, Larkhall, married George Sneddon age 30 of 90 McNeill Street, Larkhall. They married at the Trinity Church, Larkhall.

On the Scottish Rifles section of the WW1 panels is Pte. Hugh McGarvie.

I think that this is the same man:

Hugh McGarva – age 27 – Private (2403) 1/6th Battalion, Cameronians (Scottish Rifles)
Hugh was a motorman with the Lanarkshire Tramways Company in Motherwell when he enlisted in October 1914. He landed with his battalion at Le Havre on 20 March 1915 but he was killed at Festubert three months later.
Born 1888 in Borgue, Kirkcudbrightshire. Son of Alexander and Jemima (Bryden) McGarva of Drawbridge Cottage and, later, of Birtwhistle Street, Gatehouse-of-Fleet, Kirkcudbrightshire.
Missing in Action on 15 June 1915 and named on the Le Touret Memorial, France.
Also named on the Gatehouse War Memorial and on the Anwoth Parish Church memorial now in Gatehouse-of-Fleet Parish Church.

His brother Alexander McGarva – age 22 – Gunner (3010 & 936008) 35th Division Ammunition Column, Royal Field Artillery died of influenza in Glasgow on 13 February 1919 on his way home from France.

Co-incidentally Hugh's medals had to be re-engraved as they had the name McGarvie!
