P = Pilot Lamp (the indicator lamp)
B = Battery (any power source)
L = Lamps (the tail lamps and wing lamps)
Connecting P and B are pretty straightforward. Where L is connected will depend on your layout. If it's a simple circuit without a relay (i.e. when the brake light filaments don't do double duty as directionals), L should be connected to the switch. If the circuit includes a relay (i.e. when the brake lamps are used as directionals), L should probably be connected to the relay.
You'll sometimes see older Lucas flashers with "X" instead of "B", and American flashers with no markings at all.
