It is probable that "CC" Macfarlane was mistakenly put on the First World War Roll of Honour instead of "GG" Macfarlane. George Gordon Macfarlane was born on 22nd March 1885, one of four children of Mary Anne and George Macfarlane. Macfarlane attended The Glasgow School of Art from 1905 to 1909 as a student of architecture, being taught by Mr Bourdon and Mr McGibbon. His sister was the novelist and biographer Catherine Roxburgh Carswell. During the First World War, he was first enlisted as a Private in the Middlesex Yeomanry and was wounded at Gallipoli. Macfarlane then served as a 2nd Lieutenant and then Lieutenant in the Royal Field Artillery and received the Military Cross in 1918. According to the Dictionary of Scottish Architects, before the war Macfarlane worked as an assistant in an architectural firm in London. He was then employed as an architect and surveyor for Sir Henry Solomon Wellcome's 1913-1914 archaeological expedition in Jebel Moya in Sudan. After the war, he ran his own architecture practice in London, and wrote novels under the pseudonym Patrick Miller. Macfarlane was admitted as a Fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1930. Macfarlane married Anne Niemeyer (1885-1942) in 1922 and they had one child Anne Gordon (1925-1945). Macfarlane died in 1949 after a brief illness while on the Italian island of Capri. Macfarlane is commemorated on The Glasgow School of Art's First World War Roll of Honour.
