Mark IVs Lost at Sea En Route to Palestine?

Gleaned from The Tank in Action by Capt. D.G. Browne, describing the activities of the Palestine detachment:

"The surviving tanks, meanwhile, were overhauled and provided with some especial roller-sprockets, constructed in the workshops of the Egyptian State
Railways. Requests for more and newer tanks had been sent to England; but the only re-inforcement received consisted of three Mark IVs. One or more
others of this type, together with a supply of much-needed spare parts for the original Mark Is, were lost in a torpedoed transport."

Anyone else come across this claim?
