Loaded with sacks of sugar at the docks. Headboard says "Something Golden Syrup". VS 4119 = 1939 Greenock issue.

1935 onwards Badger 4-Ton or Beaver 6-Ton I guess, but I don't recognise the cab which is possibly influenced by war preparation?

edit: Perhaps Westburn Golden Syrup? One of 14 sugar refineries in Greenock.

It was also Abram Lyle's birthplace; one of the founders of 'Tate & Lyle Golden Syrup' but in the 1880s in London, not the 1940s, so perhaps a very small local competitor?

Sunbar wrote Westburn Golden Syrup?

Yes. "Glasgow became involved in the West Indian sugar trade, and sugar refining soon became a major industry in Greenock as well as Glasgow."

Let's go Badger - we've got very few compared to Beavers

Also 4-tons is probably right; if they are 224lb sacks of sugar then forty sacks is almost 4 tons I think (certainly not six tons).
