Military Cross (Feb. 1, 1919).
In the attack on Grand Couronne on September 18, 1918, Lieutenant Round was commanding a company. Though wounded early in the day he continued to lead his men to the assault of the final position, when he was again hit and carried out of action. The fine example set by his bold and fearless leading helped to inspire all ranks under his command. As Brigade Bombing Officer for about ten months, Lieutenant Round has shown great zeal and initiative, and his efforts have contributed largely to the fighting efficiency of the battalions.
