They work for me with GNU Emacs 26.3 on Debian.

What happens if you go:

  emacs -Q <filename>

? To rule your configuration out...

The same happens.

But the problem was that I had changed "emacs" in /usr/local/bin to
read: 'emacs-26.3 -fn "DejaVu Sans Mono-16"'

Changing my emacs  in /usr/local/bin back to a simple pointer to
emacs-26.3 fixes the problem.

BUT I am 80 and cannot read the default type face any more and although
C-x C-+/-/0 work it is necessary to apply that to every file called -
the commands are nor persistent.

So maybe change it to:

  emacs-26.3 -fn "DejaVu Sans Mono-16" "$@"

so the command line parameters get passed on to emacs proper?

You can configure the font size inside Emacs as well.

I sympathize...  maybe add something along these lines to your ~/.emacs
or ~/.emacs.d/init.el file:

(set-face-attribute 'default nil :family "DejaVu Sans Mono" :height 180)

You can play with the height to achieve what you want hopefully.
