Post Luck is With Us!
From The Naval Chronicle (1804, Volume XII):

" 8 inch shell fell on board the Harpy Brig; it went through the deck, killed one man, and broke a beam asunder, which luckily tore out the fuse, and it fell into the hold; one of the men instantly took it in his arms, and put it into a bucket of water."

I have the honour to be, &c.
