Discuss old 2-way lighting switch - not sure how to change over in the Lighting Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

I'm trying to change over a 2-way switch in my hallway (that controls an upstairs and downstairs light) and can't for the life of me work out where each cable from the old switch should go in the new one.

There are two cables in common (red top right and yellow bottom left)

Blue to L1
Red to L2
Black to L2 in separate hole (bottom right)

The new toggle switch i've bought has two L(ive?) holes at the top, then an L1 and L2 in at the bottom of both.
