This is basically a structure that exists permanently within a dry ditch and it is meant to allow flanking fire within the ditch in order to cover the ditch. It comes in the various shapes the most popular being in the shape of a sharpened pencil. The best examples of this structure are found within the forts at Kingston, Ontario and in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
