Gulp watch not watching

Ubuntu 18.04lts on wsl v2
dell xps 9570 32GB RAM
nvm node default alias 10.18.1
Visual Studio Code Insiders

Installed the foundation zurb template for sites via git clone
npm install ran with no issues
gulp processed the gulpfile.babale.js and served the template home page at localhost:8000
gulp> Starting ‘watch’

I added pages/card.html and populated with the card sizing demo from the zurb documentation.
Gulp is not picking up and processing the change
When I Ctl-C the gulp process and rerun it, the card.html file is successfully processed and if I got to localhost:8000/card.html the page is served.This is also true of any changes in scss etc.

I can see no reason for the gulp watch to not process the changes.
The basic template is working as expected.
The zurb template is working as expected on an Ubuntu box, so this may be a wsl issue

This may be a gulp / vinylfs issue. We saw this in another issue and recommend using Git bash or your host system. There might be some issue with filesystem events in WSL that we can not fix ourself.

Now with my new gulpfile.js like this:

var gulp = require('gulp');
var gutil = require('gulp-util');
var bower = require('bower');
var concat = require('gulp-concat');
var sass = require('gulp-sass');
var minifyCss = require('gulp-minify-css');
var rename = require('gulp-rename');
var jade = require('gulp-jade');
var sh = require('shelljs');
var browserify = require('browserify');
var source = require('vinyl-source-stream');

var paths = {
  sass: ['./src/scss/**/*.scss'],
  jade: ['./src/jade/**/*.jade'],
  js: ['./src/js/**/*.js']

gulp.task('default', ['sass', 'templates', 'scripts', 'watch']);

gulp.task('sass', function(done) {
    .on('error', sass.logError)
      keepSpecialComments: 0
    .pipe(rename({ extname: '.min.css' }))
    .on('end', done);

gulp.task('templates', function (done) {
      pretty: true
    .on('end', done);

gulp.task('scripts', function (done) {
  var bundleStream = browserify('./src/js/app.js').bundle();
    .on('end', done);

gulp.task('watch', function() {, ['sass']);, ['templates']);'./src/js/app.js', ['scripts']);

gulp.task('install', ['git-check'], function() {
  return bower.commands.install()
    .on('log', function(data) {
      gutil.log('bower', gutil.colors.cyan(, data.message);

gulp.task('git-check', function(done) {
  if (!sh.which('git')) {
      '  ' +'Git is not installed.'),
      '\n  Git, the version control system, is required to download Ionic.',
      '\n  Download git here:', gutil.colors.cyan('') + '.',
      '\n  Once git is installed, run \'' + gutil.colors.cyan('gulp install') + '\' again.'

This time the gulp command outputs this:
