Default Turn signal toggle switch question

Good day folks,
I am trying to wire in a turn signal toggle switch, but need advice please on where the wires go.
As you can see from the accompanying picture, the toggle switch has place for three wires to attach. The flasher unit also has place for three wires to attach.
Please can someone help with a simple explanation, or a simple diagram to show me what to do?
Kind regards
Mike

The live power wire from the flasher goes to the center termainal of the switch, The left and right go on the left and right of the switch. The main power goes to the flasher terminal marked bat or power. the wire to the switch goes on the terminal of the flasher that should be marked lights or switch. The third termial on the flasher is for an indicator lamp or buzzer.

I think 2manycars meant that the left and right terminals on the switch go to the turn signal bulbs.

Yes, the left and right side signal lights get wired to the left and right terminals of the switch.
