Falling poppies were projected onto Parliament's Elizabeth Tower in 2014 to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. This we look back at that projection as we remember all who have served and sacrificed.

And it really used to be the law to remember the 5th of November. In 1606, the Thanksgiving Act was passed. It required everyone in England to attend church for a public thanksgiving for the failure of the plot every 5th November until the law was repealed in 1859.

This kind of treason wasn't taken lightly in 1605. This is the Attainder of Guy Fawkes, which declares him guilty and in line for punishment without trial. It also strips him of any property and prevents him passing anything on via inheritance if sentenced to death, which he was.

The Gunpowder Plot was also recorded in the official journal. This marginal note in the Commons Journal records "36 barrels of gunpowder in the vault under the House, with a purpose to blow King and the whole Company, when they should there assemble".

The Gunpowder Plot - a failed attempt by a group of conspirators to assassinate the King in 1605 - is still remembered in UK Parliament today. Before every State Opening of Parliament, the Yeoman of the Guard search the cellars. Here they are in 1901 and 2016.
