w.house / W.H. = warehouse
entrepôt / magasin

In the absence of proper context, it's impossible to be sure exactly what TYPE of 'warehouse' it might be, which is likely to affect the translation.

I see no reason to doubt that the examples of W.H. are any different from the w. house — possibly more usually abbreviated to w/house.

As for all the other terms, only more context may help to make those clear

neutral  Eliza Hall: Couldn't this be wheelhouse, not warehouse? The other terms (alarm horn, red light) make me think Florence Metzger is right to suspect it's a ship.

  -> Florence has specialist experience in marine, which may lead to a degree of over-interpretation. However, in general, 'wheelhouse' is an old-fashioned and rather non-technical term these days, more for a small boat than large ship. Lack of CONTEXT!!
