English term or phrase:was on the blocks
The outbreak of WWII put a different complexion on Triumph’s commercial aspirations, as all production was geared up for the armed services. A prototype 350cc twin – the 3TW – was on the blocks and approved as the standard service bike when, on the night of the 14th November 1940, the Triumph factory was completely demolished in the blitz of Coventry.
