This was a narrow vertical opening that was typically wider on the inside than on the outside. This enabled the soldier to vary his aim from one side to the other while at the same time offering him a marginal amount of protection from the enemy's fire. Loopholes are typically found in stone wall as well as wooden wall construction.
