I have seen a Canadian Navy drill manual in PDF that has special on deck drilling which is slightly different.  I think the Canadian Navy at one point went to on deck drilling even on shore.
 
 
Yes, John They did.  That was always the first thing we had to sort out with those POG's when there was a Combined services parade or guard. They may have the nicest uniform in our forces, but gawd there drill looks like crap.

The Lee-Enfield should be carried, on the march, at the "Slope arms" position, at a 45 degree angle over the left shoulder. A salute on the march is done with the right hand instead of the left, with the hand brought across the small of the butt, and to "order arms" drop the left forearm from parallel to the ground to perpendicular, thereby dropping the butt down, reach across with the right arm to grasp the forestock and bring the rifle across the body and to the ground on the right.

From the "Drill for use on board ship" I think the Canadian Navy carries the Lee-Enfield  in the right hand at a "Shoulder Arms" position.

Heres regulations for Musketry 1915
 
It includes information on the .22 trainers and a section on lessons learned in the first months of WW1.
 
A good companion book is
"Rifles and Ammunition and Rifle Shooting"
 
Which includes evaluations of the arms of the major powers in WW1, and prewar experimentation leading to the MkVII bullet plus a lot more.
