Depth Charge Thrower

All,

Reading a convoy report and it was stated that a merchant ship was carrying additional stores of depth charges and items referred to as 'stalks'. Would I be correct in saying that this is just another name for the spigot that held the depth charge tray and was launched with the depth charge when fired from the thrower?

Regards,

Mark
