NORMALLY, on July 14, Solenn Gresle would be with family and friends watching fireworks in her hometown in the south of France.

The 21-year-old, pictured, today marks her first Bastille Day outside her home country as she works away on a Mildura farm.

France’s national day commemorates the storming of the Bastille in 1789, a turning point of the French revolution.

The French celebrate with parties and fireworks displays around the country and a significant military parade through the capital, Paris.
