I don't think I've actually seen an example, but I understand that death certificates for civilians killed in WW2 bombing just give the cause of death as something like "due to war operations". Perhaps someone can confirm? All part of obfuscation to prevent the Luftwaffe finding out how effective the raids were being.
My wife's uncle's family were "killed by enemy actions".
