Fish Van

If my memory serves me okay this is Benny Morrison doing his rounds selling fish just after the war. He was at my grandfathers in Tankerness with his van. Could it be a Standard Van?

It looks like a Triumph Super Seven to which someone has added a van body later, but I might well be wrong. Standard took over the bankrupt Triumph company in 1945, but this van predates that. The registration number is an Edinburgh one issued in 1932.

Paul Sutherland is correct, this is a Triumph Super Seven Van. Triumph made these in small numbers between 1930 and 1933. In 1933 Triumph remaned it a Super Eight. I am currently compiling my 3rd book on photos & memories of pre-war Triumphs and this van would be a rare & great addition. Will Edwin Randall be agreeable to help me with its inclusion?

Would this be my 2nd great uncle Bernard Morrison born 1911 ?
