Dominic Gething is a senior paramedic with the North West Ambulance Service, and will be part of the Civilian Service Contingent at the memorial.
He's been a Royal Marine and an Army reservist as well as a paramedic, and says it's an 'opportunity of a lifetime'.
Around 10,000 people normally gather at the Centotaph in Whitehall for the ceremonies, but because of the pandemic, this year only a small number of invited representatives will attend.
