Help what the? Indicators with dual filaments?

Hello All

I am stuck re wiring my Chevy Van to have Euro spec trailer lights...
I need to have independent indicators from brake lights so I need to get the front L&R indicator "juice" and bring them to the rear tailor plug...

I fiddled around and found that the front indicators bulbs have 2 filaments, what for???
Completely con-fused

Blown already one bulb in the process
Any suggestions welcome

Ok after working about two hours on the trailer lights I started wiring again and at last at 7 PM Matteo and I managed to get the lot working... Now we have to tidy the wires away etc...
