It is indeed!

A French tool developed to grasp and remove musket balls. You unscrew it to open the claws, insert the tool so the open claws surround the bullet then screw it up so it closes the claws so you can withdraw the tool with the bullet.

You're up qmax.

Ooh, I know that one. I just have to google the name.

Maunsell Army Sea Forts in the Thames and Mersey estuaries. They are from WWII. They were built to help defend GB.
