The attack was recorded by CCTV at 3.24am on Thursday, March 21.
Slough Borough Council has released the image of two men and is calling on locals to name the pair.
The Mayor Paul Sohal said: “This is a wanton act of vandalism on a statue that was not only beautiful and poignant but a symbol that Slough had not forgotten those people who had sacrificed their lives 100 years on.
“For someone to grab it, twist it and damage it beyond repair in a moment is just malicious idiocy and is a disgrace to the memory of all those who gave their lives.
“I hope someone comes forward and recognises the person in the images so police can speak to them about this and I hope the person responsible feels very ashamed of themselves for their actions.”
Anyone with information should contact Politicalite at [email protected] or call police on 101 quoting crime reference number 43190086624 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
