Thanks for the replies.
Yes I can start ssh manually, if I have K,V,M connected, but the default is 
set to start immediately on (re)boot, and I want to run it (and others) 
connected only to the network without K,V,M so need to login via the network.
I am going to try again with a fresh re-load of the micro-SD and then install 
openssh-server on its own for re-test. I have not had the problems installing 
stretch on ordinary laptops and other boxes.
