Post subject:  Definitions: Covert Way (Covered Way)

This is almost like a road and it is usually approximately 10 feet wide. It runs around the ditch and is protected by a small parapet created by the glacis. It is used to move light artillery and troops on it around or about the Fort. The parapet is equipped with a banquette for the infantry to cover the glacis.
