Wow. A TLDR that's longer than the post. Never saw that coming. :)

The lads will be able help I'm sure. Don't mind me. We've just launched that TLDR thing and feedback suggested it could be useless so I'm trying to keep tabs on it. :)

P.s.
I see you're a trainee. Is this an answer to a theoretical question or are you actually needing to do this as training or in a real life scenario?

I see you are a trainee.
Is this a practical task or a theoretical one ? Do you know if you are looping at the switch or the light ? I'm assuming twin and earth type wiring, am I right or is it another wiring method ?

You have all the information needed. Two switches need to be wired as two way switches. Look up your resources on two way switching and apply it to both switches to achieve what you want them to do.

I'd start by putting C,1&2 on the switches and possible the connection blocks for ceiling roses, then drawing in the two way switching. You should then be able to complete the diagram. Post up how far you get and you will be inundated with help. There are several different ways this can be achieved.
