Are you anything like an expert on Korean lights, fluorite?

I have a list of optics installed by Chance Brothers between 1905-1909 and I cannot identify the present-day names of at least ten of them. The names I have correspond with those listed by Reginald Harding in a report he wrote for the Korean Lighthouse Board, so they weren't just Chance nicknames!
