No insulation for the small monitors of the same period. M33 now at Portsmouth is just a steel box and she served at Gallipoli and in Northern Russia when supporting the White Russians after WW1. Must have been very bad for the crew..

To be fair, it was similar for tank crews in WW2 as the steel did neither protect against heat or cold. I do not recall reading anywhere that the crews of small gun monitors received hard lying.
