English term or phrase:shot-locker hatch
We are again on an old-time sailing ship, a man-o'-war. People are on the top deck, and voices are coming from the 'shot-locker hatch'. Definition in the text: 'the little shaft by which cannonballs could be hoisted to the forward guns'.
My question: Does anyone know a special term for that feature?
