from top reading L to R

Com 1way 2 way


1 way 2 way com

and there is a red cable in the top com, bottom 1 way

black cable in top 1 way and bottom 2 way

and a seperate red cable going from top com to bottom com

the new switch has two holes at top saying L

and four at the bottom plus a seperate Earth

your two reds in the old switch (common) go to L in the new one the same way as they are top left common onto left L and bottom left common into right L the same way as before but now side by side.
and your 1 ways are now L1 and 2way L2.
so bottom left one way in to bottom left L1 bottom left 2way into bottom L2 and top 1 way into bottom right L1

in the end if i read it properly you should have a red in each L and a black in bottom L1,L2 and bottom right L1

hope this helps!!
