Dont worry Ancestry can take a while to get used to!
I am assuming you have the Premium membership that allows you access to the medal rolls?
Ok go to Military then show all in the military section this leads you to medal rolls.
In the box make sure you click on "show advanced" on the top menu, this allows you to put a regiment and soldier number in.
Do not enter William as the first name just the initial W searches on Ancestry sometimes works to presice details.
I have just found him under W.Wright no problem.
Let me know how you get on.
