    I have found this site useful for questions like this.  It will answer your question for H and K, though I don't recall anything about L.

    Recently, I've been looking through some of the sites on this page that have older 18th and 19th Century logs available to read. In particular several from the British Adm. I've noted on most logs in the left side of the page, three columns of numbers labeled "H K L". As a novice reading these, can one of you more experienced folks tell me what these letters mean.
