British war helmets from WWII are little cheaper than those of WWI according to my research on all completed sales on eBay on the last 90 days. WWII helmets are traded every single day with minimum of 10 bids, which means there are great number of engaged buyers and sellers. You can expect to pay anywhere between $50 - $300 for a helmet based on condition & rarity.
If you are looking to buy a British helmet, you will have to join the bidding war. For example, on September 12, 2010, a WWII British helmet was sold for $267.88 with 24 bids. Take a look at the helmet on the right. It is not in great shape, but still goes for high price because of its rarity.
eBay is indeed the best place for searching WWII British helmets for sale from various sellers and collectors. I don't think there's any other place like it. Below are some of the listing from eBay. Browse the the listing and click on a link which you are interested in. You will be taken to a page with more information on the helmet.
