Derby has always taken a great deal of pride in its military veterans, and this Honor Roll which once stood at the junction of Rt. 34 and Main Street in East Derby was an example. The section was devastated in the flood of 1955, but several people not only answered the quiz, but also recounted memories of Mester's Drug Store which can be seen on the right side of the picture.

There is still a monument to East Derby veterans in the area. Click here to see it.
