This book tells the story of the origins, context and performance of Beth Derbyshire's most recent work, Message, which took place along the River Thames on Remembrance Sunday, 2005.

It is generously illustrated throughout with photographs of the piece, as well as maps, drawings, correspondence and images of Derbyshire's work. Each chapter in the book is marked by a message issued during a war and printed in red and yellow to echo the semaphore flags; they range from a text message sent during recent service in Iraq, to Montgomery's famous quote, "We have been through dark days'. Kate Adie also contributes an essay on the theme of war and remembrance.

Beth Derbyshire says Message is a pertinent reminder that we must not forget the actions of thos both living and past: 'It is not, however, an advocacy of the 'glorious dead', but a living memorial uniting older and younger generations in the hope of a brighter future.'
