While IR 93 (Mot) until September 19, 1939, proceeds with the attack and pursuit towards the Vistula which ended with the capture of Deblin and the formation of a bridgehead at Pulawy. From September 20, 1939 and until early October 1939, the Polish campaign seemed to have ended for the regiment. In addition to local raking, troops returned to technical service and exercises.

As of September 20, 1939, the XIV. AK (Mot) was deployed between Deblin and Warka. Units east of the Wierpz fell back.

On September 17, Soviet troops had invaded eastern Poland. The war for that country was finally lost. The German advance slowed down. Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 remained in the small town of Antoniówka from late September to early October, while awaiting the completion of two emergency bridges across the Vistula. The houses were "vermin free" except for a few insects and fleas. "
