Narrative:
Whilst taxiing to park on the apron, the aircraft's right wingtip contacted a frangible flood light pole situated on the perimeter of the apron. The light pole gave way as designed. Initial contact was with the aircraft's right navigation light's perspex cover which cracked and became dislodged. Upon further inspection, a small dent was also identified on the leading edge of the right aileron control horn.
