If the rotational forces are relatively low, I think round is fine. But if it gets serious torque, square would be mechanically secure. So without knowing more, I go with square.

I agree with this reasoning, and if making this joint I’d would proceed that way, but it would be nice to know what you were making. I would assume the Brits knew, and it had a low rotational force. Otherwise their answer makes no sense.
