F. R. McMillan

Biography

F.R.McMillan, or 'Mac' as he was more commonly called, was born on the 25th June 1914. His father had a sports shop and Mac became a tennis racquet stringer, working in Cambridge, England after he married. The sports work was only for the six winter months, so Mac took other jobs during the rest of the year.

During the depression of the 1930s he took any job he could get and when he received his call-up papers, in June 1940, he was a baker’s roundsman.

After the war, and his time spent in the Army, Mac went into engineering becoming the foreman at a small firm. He was a keen union man and became the branch secretary of the AEU (Amalgamated Engineering Union).

Sadly, Mac McMillan passed away following a heart attack in 1959 aged 45.
