Any left-handed people who apply to join HM Forces are either forced to become right-handed, or dropped out of the back out of a Hercules over the
North Sea for being odd-balls....
Seriously though, I suspect any "left handed" pilots just needed to adapt and learn. Anyone can learn to use both hands, it's just we have a
naturally preference for one or the other.
And the flight deck looks narrow because, well, it was!
Remember, these aren't proper Aircraft carriers - it is more of a flat top cruiser hull. The last true Fleet carrier the RN had was the Hermes,
decommissioned in 1986 and currently serving with the Indian Navy.
