10th Hussars shipwrecked Dec 3, 1899

Seeking information about the 10th Hussars aboard the S.S. Ismore, which sailed from Liverpool, 5 Nov 1899 and went aground at a place called "Soldier's Reef" off West Africa 3 Dec 1899. HMS Niobe and HMS Doris came to the aid of the ship. Does anyone know of an account of this incident and where I might be able to obtain it? Thank you.
