This is a structure that is found projecting from a high work or tower and it is usually protected by a stone parapet in which there are openings in order to drop materials, especially combustible materials, onto the advancing enemy. Very few fortifications in Canada have such structures. A good example for your thought process is that some Martello Towers are equipped with these.
