GWLC 1916, Swaffham

There is a small, derelict brick building in Swaffham, Norfolk, probably Victorian in origin, that may have been a magazine for storing weapons or armaments. There is an inscription on the building which reads: "G.W.L.C. 1916". There is some speculation that the LC stands for "Labour Corps", involving British citizens with German origins working for the war effort. But nobody really has any idea. For further details and photographs, see the local newspaper's story:

Does anyone know what the letters GWLC stand for?

so is it an inscription like someone has written their name or something more substantive like a pressed metal plaque?

The letters are cut into a brick.

Unfortunately, since I posted the topic the newspaper has removed the photo of the brick from the website, so it is no longer possible to view it. The photo of the derelict building remains, but that isn't much use in this context.
