hi kye

the feeds in and out go to L1, the switch line for the light goes to L2 and the 3 core goes how it does normally, i use black in common, brown L1 and grey L2 (dont forget sleeving). as you stated neutrals in a heat proof connector and earths to the back box or in a heat proof connector (sleeving), if the faceplate is metal you need a fly lead to earth.

Are they old colours or new.I would connect strappers as is.L1-Red or Brown.L2 Yellow or Black and L3 Blue or Grey.I would put all the blue's or black's at the switch that are incoming and outgoing into connector block.The feed in and out i would connect to L2 whether that be brown or red.The switch line i would connect to L3 whether that was brown or red.Don't forget to sleeve the strappers.:rolleyes:
