Your selection is the wrong Bell.  He' s born in Tasmania, dark complected.  My Wm Bell has blue eyes.  If you open the link I included, it opens the last of 6 pages of service record.  Is that Pte? Private?  I can't suss out most of that page.
I don't have Ancestry but the link I put up takes you to William Bell born Marrickville, NSW.

Page 46 says Pte (Private)

Page 43 lists him as Private on his marriage certificate.
That's my guy.  Apparently he was a miscreant since he was 13.  A little reformatory time and lots of AWOL events on his military record.
