Patey was born on 24 February 1859 at Montpellier, near Plymouth, United Kingdom. His father, also named George Edwin Patey, was a Royal Navy officer too. Patey entered the Royal Navy as a cadet on 15 January 1872, aged 12.
Patey served as a Midshipman aboard HMS Shah as part of the British Pacific Squadron under Admiral de Horsey during the Battle of Pacocha, an action in company with the corvette HMS Amethyst on 29 May 1877 with the Peruvian armoured turret ship Huáscar which had been taken over by rebels opposed to the Peruvian Government and, it was feared, could be used to attack British shipping. Promoted to Sub-Lieutenant on 21 March 1878 and while upon the voyage home HMS Shah was diverted to South Africa to assist in the Anglo-Zulu War. Patey served in the naval brigade which was formed to fight ashore, for which he received the Zulu Medal.
Promoted to Lieutenant on 10 August 1881,he went to gunnery school at HMS Excellent between February 1889 and February 1892. Assigned to naval intelligence he was promoted to Commander on 31 December 1894 and became Assistant Director of Naval Intelligence. Serving upon HMS Barfleur as part of the British Mediterranean Squadron, he participated in the Allied occupation of Candia, Crete on 15 February 1897, and was part of the International Squadron blockading Crete during the Greco-Turkish uprising on Crete.
After being promoted to Captain on 1 January 1900, he went on to serve as Assistant Director of Naval Intelligence until 5 May 1901. He was awarded the Order of the Redeemer from George I, King of Greece in 1903. In command of HMS Venerable, he was appointed Member of the Royal Victorian Order by Edward VII, King of the United Kingdom during his visit to Naples on 23 April 1903. Later he went on to command HMS Implacable between 1905 and 1907. He was awarded the Cross of the Order of the Naval Merit and Cross of the Order of Military Merit from Alfonso XII, King of Spain. On 22 March 1908, he became a Naval Aide-de-camp to King Edward VII.
On 2 January 1909, he was promoted to Rear Admiral in the British Home Fleet and was commander of the 2nd Battle Squadron until 1911. He was appointed the first Rear Admiral Commanding His Majesty's Australian Fleet in 1913 and was awarded a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order on his flagship HMAS Australia, when King George V visited the Australian Fleet at Spithead on 30 June 1913 to review the fleet and watch them depart for Australia.
At the outbreak of World War I, he commanded the naval sqaudron as part of the New Zealand Samoa Expeditionary Force that captured German Samoa and the Australian Naval and Military Expeditionary Force that captured German New Guinea. Sailed with HMAS Australia to join the 2nd Battlecruiser Squadron at Rosyth, Scotland and on 8 February 1915, became the flagship of the Squadron. He was promoted to Vice Admiral on 21 September 1914 and became Commander-in-Chief, North America and West Indies Station the following year.
He was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George on 1 January 1916. On 22 September 1916, he transferred to another ship of the Royal Navy and command of His Majesty's Australian Fleet was transferred to Rear Admiral William Pakenham.
He died on 5 February 1935.

littlehand,

HMS Shah served in the Zulu war and provided officers and men for the Naval brigade, but Sub-Lieutenant George E. Patey was not amoung them.

He was entitled to the Zulu War Medal, but no clasp. Confirmed on the Medal Roll. He is also not mentioned in "List of Officers landed from Her Majesty's Ships for Service on Shore during the Zulu Campaign."
