Help on naming this part

You've been on here long enough to know that regardless of where you post a question, be it the Hole, the NAAFI, or Current Affairs, the same turds will reply with their own unique brand of "humour" regardless; most of which will be lacking in silverware, operational service and will almost certainly be addicted to alcohol.

Don't take it personally.
Somebody missed their nap this afternoon . . .

Are there any happy teddy bears out there?

A wild guess - the knurled bit suggests it is adjustable by hand and could therefore be to do with calibration in a workshop. The base may be a later addition and not part of the original thingymabob.
*sensible mode on*
At a guess, the LH end is a significant part and the RH end (the long bit) has been made to mount it on. Looks like there are 2 O ring grooves by the knurled parts so I’m thinking temperature probe or similar, but no thread so not pressurised, possibly extra holes in the end where the long spigot goes for cables?

It’s a turkey baster for non binary midgets.

Presented to Brigadier EG Bailey From All Members 61 STA WKSP REME August 1979.

Which is why I posted it in the REME forum hoping to get a sensible answer, fat chance.
The last paragraph of the linked article tells you what it is.

It's a scale model replica cannon. Or, at least, what a REME apprentice thinks one looks like.

Looks like something my urologist uses for prostate checks.

Looks a twingeing screw mount for a floggle toggle but that's more a Navy thing so you may be better asking on a RN forum.

It would work well as Part B of a precision sundial, Part A being the dial.
