I feel that the French have become somewhat embarrassed by the actual happening on the day rather than the event that it started. As a result they prefer to call it their National Day.
7 people rescued from the Bastille
2 not of of sound mine
Take all the rifles and forget the ammunition
If they prefer to call it their National Day I will go along with that and avoid any chance of causing a upset.
My question - when is Great Britain's National Day
