Subject: [Lon] What was a Van Guard?

Now I know this sounds funny, but what would a 15yr old boy be doing as a van guard. This is the occupation noted on the 1891 census for my grand dad.
If anyone has the inclination to check it out themselves, the family is Goss headed by Henry goss living at 24 Berthon street in St Paul Deptford. RG12/0494, page 14, 41.
