Object Outside The Bridge

Hi All,

I've often wondered what the tall, and quite large pole type object that stand's just outside the bridge is?

You can see one in Ken's painting of first officer Murdoch running into the Wheel house after spotting the Ice burg. Could anybody shed any light on what it is?

Regards,

Michael George.
 
It is a pelorus platform, a navigational instrument resembling a mariner's compass without magnetic needles and having two sight vanes by which relative bearings are taken. There was one on each side.
