In 1911 he finished second in the 220 y at the Empire Festival at the Crystal Palace.

Macmillan left Trinity College, Cambridge in 1912 without graduating and during the war served as a lieutenant in the South Notts Hussars. He later settled in Australia where he worked for the Federal Attorney General's Department in Perth.
