Alex was not on Hesperus while the GDL was . . . he was sitting on Tharkad.  Originally Alex was a dark smudge on a wall on Tharkad City, but it was a developer remark on a Ask topic . . . since it was never put in a actual book he was part of the Great Resurrection of 2020 which saw the Smoke Jaguars, Eridani Light Horse (again), Kisho Nova Cats, Nova Cats in general, return of the classics to in universe production, and more.

His great-grandkids did the reformation.

Yeah that.

It was in JTP: Tharkad, which says on p. 6 that the Royal Guards had no other living soldiers but Peter during multiple points during the Blakist occupation. Since JTP: Tharkad is a strictly out-of-universe document that makes it a full-on retcon rather than mistaken identity.

Its mentioned in the Archer Entry in Il-Khan Mech sourcebooks that he survived it and retired. Since he was enrolled in the Royal Guard it seems that JTP Tharkad was overextragating a little.

His girlfriend was still with the Legion.

Which is the retcon, like comic books if the body is not there public display . . . are they really dead?

An explanation that would work if the book was an in-universe document. But it's not, so the only way that can be true is just a straight retcon.

It doesn't explicitly state that everyone but Peter was killed, it says that Peter called anyone that fought around him Royal Guards, so some could still be from the original Guards, also those that couldn't carry on fighting due to wounds could be left with civilians, with resistance forging their documents so they could blend into local population.
Shoot first, laugh later.
