As you can see the memorial was in need of cleaning the last time I saw it, hopefully its had a facelift since then!
I think its probable the Kenneth Campbell listed on the WWII Roll of Honour is the VC listed on the Saltcoats memorial. I have posted some information on Campbell on the Saltcoats posting.

The Kenneth Campbell VC referred to is the same as named on the Saltcoats Memorial.
Campbell was born in Saltcoats son of James Campbell WS solicitor and bank agent.
At the time of his call up and death the family had become resident at Kerelaw House Stevenston hence the entry on both Saltcoats and Stevenston Memorials.

Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald 11 June 1915
"STEVENSTON MAN KILLED
The report currant last week regarding the death in action of Corporal James Paterson, 34 Townhead Street, Stevenston, has unfortunately been confirmed and we have to express our sympathy with his wife and five children. Corporal Paterson is a Kilwinning man, but since his marriage he has been resident in Stevenston. He saw service in the South African war, and had only been a few days at the front when was sniped while on duty as a patrol"
