How to wire Light Switch

Hi, I want to replace a 2 gang 2way light switch. I thought I could just put the wires in the same holes as the old switch but it is different. Could someone tell me which wires go in which hole. The attached photo should explain better.
It is a 2 gang 2 way switch.
The first switch just turns on one light.

The second switch turns on another light but also there is another switch across the room which works the same light.
Thanks for any advice
