Placed in a redesigned garden area, it compliments the memorial on Cathedral Green, designed by local artist John Angel and unveiled in 1923.
Attending the unveiling at 10.30am will be Lord Mayor Coun Rob Newby, the Bishop of Exeter the Rt Rev Michael Langrish, and representatives from the battalions and regiments in which the fallen servicemen had served.
Mr Newby said: "As a city, we already honour our dead from the two Great Wars, and it is fitting that we honour those who have fallen since 1945. This memorial allows us to do just that."
