There is something not quite right.
If you follow the family from 1861 to 1901, the father is a William possibly born 1844, and Emily born possibly 1849, I say possibly because they vary.
William disappears after the 1881 census. They had children 1870, 1872, 1874, 1876, 1878, 1880, 1882 There is then a gap until 1890, 1891 and finally 1894, including a boy Philip In 1891 and 1901 Emily is a Widow.

There is a marriage jun qtr 1870 in Mitford ref 4b 443 for William Rudling to Emily Robertson, but I cannot find a marriage of a Philip. Did William have a brother named Philip and did Emily have an affair with him. This would explain the gap between 1882 and 1890, Harry was born 1890 and Philip in 1891

the Philip on the Army record as Harry's father was deceased by 1919

It is interesting that on 1911 census Emily 65 is with Harry 20, Philip 22 and Walter 18, but she has put she was married 40 years, with 3 children alive 0 dead. She is living at Mill Road Shipdham the address on the army records

EDIT to confirm this thinking, there is this death

Deaths Dec 1882
RUDLING William 39 Mitford 4b 165
