WorldWar I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Sergeant in A Company, of the 40th Tasmania Australian Infantry. On August 12, 1918, his company was in advance against German positions near Proyart, France. When the company was held down, Sergeant Statton engaged two machine-gun posts with a Lewis gun. Then on his left having been stopped by heavy machine-gun fire, he rushed four machine-gun posts in succession, armed only with a revolver, putting two out of action and killing five of the enemy. For most conspicuous bravery, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal in February, 1919.
