A Conversation for Fighting the Zeppelin

I was very surprised by this article. With the Zeppelins being so large and slow I thought they would be a sitting duck, especially with the inflammable hydrogen. I didn't know about their altitude advantage. However, something has puzzled me. If the Zeppelins flew so high didn't the crew have a problem with the cold and the thin air?

There was no heating on the airships so they designed warm suits for it )called ['Teddy Suits' in British service). That was the main reason the 'Height-climbers' failed - cold crews!
