There us a one-legged sign "P St John's P Mayorhold P Grosvenor" Which I reported as 25% rusted through a few years ago. I would now say it us visibly 50% rusted through, plus invisible rust beneath the PVC coating, where moss is growing. A few weekends ago, we had high winds, and I noticed the post is now bent. The bending will accelerate the rusting. The rusting will accelerate the bending.
