im surprised that no-one has ever mentioned the well-known fact that jacky waltz was a tranvestite.apart from anecdotes from contemporaries which no author ever mentions-there are several news items of the day particularly the 1878 period which mention this. he was once caught parading around the silver king in a dress and camisole,duly arrested and cautioned.this occurred according to newspapers a total of 4 times in 1878.this of course doesnt necessarilly mean he was gay and i think his "relationship" with geronimo was probabley innocent.i might be wrong.

it is or at least should be known ,and i stress here that it isnt necessarilly gospel truth ,but the pamphlet aforementioned stated all this and various other things connected to this particular incident. but i assume thereason it is but rarely mentioned is because it doesnt do a great deal for waltzs image.
alistair
you used the name jacky waltz of course phonetically you were correct ,but the spelling in the pamphlet was jacqui (short for jacqueline ,his nickname according to author)
