caramañola

I'm seeing a lot of references to caramañola in Bolivian sources from the Chaco War era. It is obviously a piece of equiptment that all soldiers are issued, and I believe it it something like a canteen, but I wanted confirmation. The current reference that I'm looking at is:

"Por todo equipo llevaba una mochila, un morral para llevar la munición y la coca, y un jarro con su caramañola"

Thanks for any help or suggestions!
