In July 1941, the Thanh Hoa provincial party committee decided to choose Ngoc Trao village (belongs to Trac Nhat canton, Thach Thanh district) to be the provincial revolutionary base.

Tran Tien Quan and Dang Van Hy, members of the provincial party committee, in charge of security. Because of the rapid development of base’s strength and to avoid the seeking out information of the enemy, all the base’s forces moved to Treo Cave (15km far from Ngoc Trao, bordering area between Thach Thanh and Ha Trung districts. Here, the Ngoc Trao guerilla unit, the forerunner of the Thanh Hoa revolutionary armed forces, was officially found with 21 people and the song “Doi ta bay lau kho roi” was chosen as unit’s song. Under the national flag, the whole unit did take an oath “Fighting and scarifying for the national liberation cause”
