    doesn't matter, only two cables are used in phone lines so as long as the cables correspond at both ends in 2 and 5 it should work, usually blue in 2, yellow and white in 5. hope this helps.

    Sorted. Found the two colours going to A & B from the plug on the extension. Then joined those colours to the two on the second extension. Bingo. It works.
    Thanks for your help.
