Moray Council announced yesterday that the damage to the Tommy silhouette had been repaired by their blacksmith.
However, the metal sculpture will remain safely stored away until the Remembrance Sunday service in Elgin next month.
This was the second time in two weeks that the memorial silhouette of a soldier had to be removed and repaired due to incidents of vandalism.
Police are continuing to appeal for information to find those responsible. Following both crimes, extensive inquiries are being carried out, including house-to-house inquirie and increased patrols.
Sergeant Julie Britton from the Elgin Community Policing Team said: “This is a mindless act of vandalism which is despicable and has caused understandable upset in the community.
“We believe the most recent incident occurred sometime between Monday and Tuesday and I would appeal to anyone who has information which could assist the investigation to contact Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if they wish to remain anonymous.”
