I would guess that the blue & whites ae the strappers...

but that's just guessing..
without seeing how they were original connected..

Or metering them out to the other end of the 2-way switching...

The actual colours used will depend upon the preference of the person who originally fitted the previous switch.

The back box shown does not require an earth but whether this is the case with the others and connected light fittings who knows. It may be wise to get it checked over.
