Auflärungs-Abteilung (mot.) 6 - Polenfeldzug 1939.
On September 2, 1939 after an attack by Stukas, the 1. Le. Div attacked Wielun at 05:00 hours. The city was taken against light enemy resistance at 10:30 hours. The I./Pz.Rgt.11 supported the attack of the II. and III./KSR.4 but did not shoot. The city is taken without casualties. During the day, the division was subordinated to XIV.AK (Mot).
Without order and permission of the division, Oberstleutnant von Ravenstein attacked a crossing point on the Warta on the southeast flank of the division. The 6./KSR.4 marched to the crossing which was reported free. The squadron dismounted and moved over the bridge where it met enemy resistance. The squadron suffered 5 killed and 8 wounded, the raid failed and the squadron had to withdraw during the night.
On September 2 in the morning, detachments of the 1. Le. Div and 18. ID attacked the 36 pp, which was defending the borders with some forces in Popowice and the bulk of the forces in the region Kurów - Gaszyn. The regiment broke the enemy attacks at the expense of losses in the troops of the 2nd Battalion, then regrouped in the village of Wielgie. At 22:00 hours the 28 DP began to regroup on the main line of defense. As this position was about 40 km from the border area occupied by the troops of the 28 DP, the division commander appointed an intermediate position in the Warta river.
