The plaque has been in place since the memorial ceremony
Now it's a listed structure.
Unveiled on 1921.
Tim Downs, manager of Mansfield District Council park and open space, said: "Any crime against public property is sad, but the theft of War Memorial is especially regrettable and disgusting.
"The memorial pays tribute to the locals who gave their lives to our country during the First World War.
