Experience in both.
Was warfare, went WAFU. Not engineering though. But, what I found it was different navy's, so to speak. I enjoyed both.
To answer your questions...
1) Ok.
2) warfare= sea/ wafu = sea and shore.
3) Joining RN is worth it across the board, no matter what branch.
4) Experiences? Joined Raleigh loving beer and chicks. Left the mob as a well established gentlemen who enjoyed uckers!
Hope this helps as I'm not a CA.

For a taster of training to be a AET, aircraft tech. use the search facility at the top right of the home page and search for posts by 'maxpowers'. He joined as an AET. He has waxed lyrical about his experiences and challenges along the way.
I was a NAM which was AET in days gone by. As an aircraft mechanic/engineer it is a very satisfying job. Especially once you are fully qualified and get to work unsupervised. However my experiences were way back so little use comparing with the AET's of today. As for sea time. The ratio of sea time to shore time is ok. Certainly better than being Warfare.
As for Warfare as a trade, no idea. I was a 100% Air Arm so no experience of the general service and they're routines. Other than working alongside them on board.
