On page 235 of THE LUGER BOOK by John Walter he suggests that it was applied by the Polizeiwehr Bayerns (Bavarian Police) after 1920. There was also a EWB mark burned into grips (I have one of these) by Bavarian residents defense force known as the Einwohnerwehr.

I have one of the "EWB" types, a 1918 DWM, with the letters burned into the right grip. I have no idea what this does to the value of the Luger, if anything.

I have had one P08 marked PwB and seen several. All were police lugers so I figure it is a police unit. By chance, is the subject pistol stamped at the base hump of the front grip strap and across the strap rather than along the length of the grip strap?

I believe the EWB grips are from a Bavarian paramilitary of Freikorps group early in the post war period. This unit may have been involved in putting down the red uprising in Bavaria.
