JIS patter screwdriver set and replacement fuse arrived this morning. Put new fuse in 3pm, turned ignition....... very pleased to say, started first time. A big relief too.
Thanks everyone for the input on this:) Stay safe.

That is good news, is the alternator charging OK ? Have you checked the voltage at battery terminals with engine running ? If it is below 14 volts you may have lost a diode in alternator or damaged the charge control module.

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

I set the volt meter to the 50 range, seemed to get a reading of 12.5/13V

That is the battery voltage. Switch the headlights on and it should go up to 14.6v.

The alternator output should never really go below about 13.6 as that is the bare minimum to keep battery condition without really charging it ( float voltage ).

I assume this is with the engine running?

Just went out and tested again, 12.5/13V with engine running and lights on.
