Having looked again I think Adamson to Ramsay are WW2 names also.

WW1 panels appear to be on the sides of the memorial, (Beatson to Mackintosh and McIntosh to Wright) - 52 names

WW2 panels appear to be on the front and back (Adamson to Ramsay and Drysdale to Wells) - 23 names

This matches what's on the UKNIWM but I don't think it's correct

The following men are WW1 (Cpl. G. Stoddart has a CWGC stone in Tuliallan Cemetery, just along the road)

Name: STODDART
Initials: G
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Corporal
Regiment/Service: Royal Air Force
Age: 28
Date of Death: 27/06/1921
Service No: 4170
Additional information: Son of Margaret Stoddart, of 52, Kirk St., Kincardine, Fife, and the late James Stoddart.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Reserve ground. 66.
Cemetery: TULLIALLAN CEMETERY

And this man is listed on a Family Stone in the same cemetery:

Name: WELLS, William
Initials: W
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Private
Regiment/Service: Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders
Unit Text: 2nd Bn.
Age: 35
Date of Death: 25/09/1915
Service No: 6904
Additional information: Son of Thomas and Mary Wells, of Kincardine, Fife; husband of Alice Charlotte Wells, of 119, Coleman St., Ord Place, Chatham.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: C. 5.
Cemetery: CAMBRIN CHURCHYARD EXTENSION

I haven't checked the others, but it's beginning to look like only Adamson to Ramsay are WW2?

Maybe 'Drysdale to Wells' were missed off and added at a later date? Confused
