RCMP are asking for the public’s help after four plaques dedicated to fallen soldiers were stolen from the Legion of Frontiersmen War Memorial.

Mounties believe they were taken sometime between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Nov. 24 from the site in the southeast corner of Strathcona County on Highway 14 and Range Road 205.

The monument is provincially and nationally recognized as a historical monument that is also a regional landmark for local residents.

The first plaque reads: “Dedicated to the memory of Frontiermen who fell in the Great War 1914-1918, erected by their comrades July 1935.”

The second plaque reads: “In memory of those who fell during the Second World War.”

The other two plaques commemorate two Dominion Commandants: Brig. A. Mack (Oct. 5, 1898 – Oct. 9, 1990) and Col. Lewis Scott (died 1965).

Strathcona County RCMP are investigating and ask anyone with information to call (780) 467-7741.
