Help Wiring Light Switch


Hi,
I have a dual dimmer light switch that i want to replace with a normal dual switch.
See attached picture, the old dimmer switch is on the left and the new normal switch is on the right.
The left side of the dimmer switch is a two way switch, i.e I can turn the light on and off from the dimmer or a switch on the other wall.

Can someone tell me what wires i need to transfer into the new light switch ?

Thanks in advance
Adrian

That looks like UK or Australia wiring. You are going to need to wait for one of our friends from that area of the world to check in.
